Jama Connect User Guide

Filter the stream

Filters let you see only comments that matter to you. When you create a filter, it remains active only if the session is active.

If you want to reuse a filter, you can save it. You can also bookmark a filter in your browser to view later.

Note

You can create custom filters at an item level to filter comments or activities in the stream.

  1. Open a Stream window and select the Filter comments field.

    !

    Displays a menu of actions.

    Keyword

    Displays a menu of frequently used names for people, groups, projects, or other content types.

  3. Select an option from one of the menus or press Enter if you entered a new keyword.

  4. (Optional) To filter by actions, select the Quick filters menu. These filters are additive so you can filter on multiple actions.

    The filters you choose appear below the comment field. The stream is refreshed with each filter you add or delete.
