Configure Parametric Filters to Never Show or Always Show

You can configure Find to always show or never show particular parametric filters. For example, if you have internal filters, you can configure Find so that they do not appear to your users.

To configure parametric filters that you never want to show

  1. Go to the Find home directory.
  2. Open config.json in a text editor.
  3. In the parametricNeverShow section of the configuration file, specify a list of parametic fields that you never want to show. For example:

    "parametricNeverShow": ["INTERNAL_FIELD", "FILE_TOO_LARGE", "HAS_BEEN_VIRUS_CHECKED"]

    This setting removes the INTERNAL_FIELD, FILE_TOO_LARGE, and HAS_BEEN_VIRUS_CHECKED parametric fields from the lists of parametric fields sent to the client.

    The user cannot see or work with these fields, although the fields are still visible in the metadata display.

    NOTE:

    The names of the parametric fields need to match the IDOL field name.

  4. Restart Find to apply your configuration changes.

To configure parametric filters that you want to always show

  1. Go to the Find home directory.
  2. Open config.json in a text editor.
  3. In the parametricAlwaysShow section of the configuration file, specify a whitelist of parametic fields. For example:

    "parametricAlwaysShow": ["COLOR", "PRICE", "MODEL"]

    In the above example, the COLOR, PRICE, and MODEL fields are the only parametric fields that are available to filter by in the Find user interface. Any fields not included in the always show list are not displayed. If there are any fields in both the always show and the never show lists, the never show list takes priority and the field is not visible.

    NOTE:

    The names of the parametric fields need to match the IDOL field name.

  4. Restart Find to apply your configuration changes.
