You can filter on all objects, events and their relationships that are part of the analysis. If an object or event is listed in the View Control panel is part of the analysis. When creating filters, it does not matter if the object or event is shown or hidden in the View Control. An event is still part of the analysis, even if it’s hidden from the graph. Any object type or event types that are not shown in the graph are shown as “hidden from the graph” when setting up a filter.

Filters and the View Control panel both impact the information displayed in the analysis and can impact what is shown in the process graph.

How filtering effects the View Control panel

Applying a filter reduces the data that is displayed in the analysis. Which means that filters influence the totals displayed in the View Control panel, such as object counts, event count, and object counts on particular events.

However, filters do not influence which objects and events are displayed in the View Control panel. If no object or event type is remaining from the data after applying the filter, then the object or event is hidden.

How filtering effects the graph

Applying a filter also reduces the data that is included in the analysis. Hence, filters influence the graph and the numbers shown on the graph, such as the object counts, event counts, object counts on particular events and edges.

If the event count or object count is reduced to zero due to filtering, then the event is no longer connected to the graph. In this scenario, the object or event is no longer displayed on the graph.
