RSE filter are a way to group objects together inside of the RSE software.

  • An example might be a group of source members needed to create a service program
  • or a list of database files you need to keep track of for testing.

Creating a filter is easy!

  • Under each RSE connection is an entry for iSeries Objects
  • Keep drilling down until you see a Work with... entry.
  • You can filter by library, object or member as well as everything in your library list and everything in the *USRLIBL.
  • The way filters are displayed in the tree can be changed by using filter pools.
  • Turn on the filter pool function by clicking the down-pointing triangle on the right in the top of the RSE view.
  • Alternately, click or Ctrl-F7 to set the focus in the RSE view and press Ctrl-F10. Select the option called 'show filter pools.'


Filters are stored in files inside the workspace.

  • The filter files have a .xmi extension.
  • Let's assume the workspace is stored in c:\wdsc7.
  • The RSE filters are stored in the C:\wdsc7\RemoteSystemsConnections\filter_pool_name\Filters\ibm.files400\filter directory.
  • They are XML, and a filter for QCMDSRC looks like this:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<filters:SystemFilter xmi:version="2.0" xmlns:xmi=""
mlns:filters="http:///filters.ecore" name="my_qcmdsrc" type="Member" relativeOrder="10"
stringsCaseSensitive="false" release="630">
  <strings string="MYLIB/QCMDSRC(*) MBRTYPE(*)"/>

Note that the case of the names of System i objects residing in the QSYS.LIB file system are in upper case.
