Settings - Content Filters

Content Filters allow you to create a series of criteria through which Superdesk can narrow down item groupings. This is useful for creating products, for example, as you can select one or more content filters to draw content into the product. These filters are created by building on other Content Filters or selecting new Filter conditions.


 To create a new Filter Condition, click the Filter Condition tab along the top, then click ADD NEW FILTER CONDITION button in the top-right corner.  A new window will open. The NAME field is for labelling your filter condition, using a descriptive name will help others understand what your filter does.

The Field dropdown allows you to select which part of the item to look at when filtering. In the above example, this filter condition looks for items that have the genre ‘sport’. The OPERATOR field includes both ‘in’ and ‘nin’, which are includes and does not include respectively. 

To create a new Content Filter, click the FILTERS tab and then click ADD NEW CONTENT FILTER button in the top-right corner.


The GLOBAL setting toggle allows other users with access to Content Filters to see the filter you’re creating. You can add other content filters to your current one and build upon those, or add new Filter Conditions. In the above example the Content Filter is set up to find items that have the genre ‘sport’ and does not include the keyword ‘baseball’, so all items that relate to sports, but not baseball. To test the filter, find an item that should pass your filter and an item that should not pass your filter. Put the article ID in the FILTER TEST field and click TEST. If the content filter works as intended, click the SAVE button.
