Importing a Filter

An administrator can import a filter file into the repository that was previously exported from the same or a different repository.

This command is most useful for administrators and developers who use a secondary Astoria repository for development or staging and want to replicate filter files that have been developed and/or validated on the other system.
  1. Navigate to the Filtering\Filters folder in the Administration cabinet.
  2. Right-click the folder and select Administration > Filtering > Import Filter File.
    The Import Filter File(s) dialog appears.


    The Location field displays the location where the file will be imported, and cannot be changed.

  3. Next to the File Name(s) field, click Browse, then navigate to and select the filter file in the local file system.
    You can multiselect filter files.
  4. If necessary, modify the filter file Name to match the specifications inside the filter file.
  5. Optionally, add a Description of the filter file.
  6. Click OK.
The filter file is imported into the repository.
