Jama Connect User Guide

Filter the Explorer Tree

Typically, the Explorer Tree contains many items, which makes finding what you need difficult or time-consuming. To quickly locate multiple items in the Explorer Tree, apply an existing filter.


For best search results and quality performance, make your filters as specific as possible to return only the results you need. If you run a filter against all your Jama Connect projects, the results you get might be too broad to be helpful and performance can be affected by such a large data set.

  1. Select the Filters tab in the Explorer Tree to view your saved filters and other users' filters saved as "Make public." 

  2. Right-click on the filter you want to use and select Apply filter to Explorer.


The filter results are displayed in the Explorer Tree. Items in the hierarchy that don't apply to your search criteria are displayed in lighter text.
