RSE filters are a way to group objects together. 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.'

Internals

Filters are stored in files inside the workspace. The filter files have a .xmi extension. Let's assume the workspace is stored in c:\wdsc. 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="http://www.omg.org/XMI" xmlns:filters="http:///filters.ecore" name="my_qcmdsrc" type="Member" relativeOrder="10" stringsCaseSensitive="false" release="630">
  <strings string="MYLIB/QCMDSRC(*) MBRTYPE(*)"/>
</filters:SystemFilter>

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