How do I create a filter?
Filters can be created from within the "Configuration" portion of your admin, under Filters. Once the page has loaded, you should see the option to "Create" in the top right corner.
The initial creation page will provide you with some options to customize the filter. These options are broken down into "entity types" and "operators". Entity types is what will be filtered itself, so you will see products, orders, and locations as an example. If you select orders, the operators you edit will now apply for an order logic. This means you may not be able to access information that entity does not have access to.
Operators are the conditions/logic you are indicating to use for the actual filter itself, and when it should be applied. You can create multiple conditions that will be under these operators for and/or. When you select AND, everything must be met in this filter to complete. Or, will use the logic of the first condition met (If there are multiple met conditions).
Where do I use the filter?
Filters are primarily used in your order routing engine logic. Using filters under the Order Router you will be able to create logic for determining what location is used for fulfillment.
To apply a filter you will need to beginning by opening your Order Routing Engine, under Integrations. The filter option itself will be found under Routing Rules, by clicking "Add Filter". The pop-up that appears will than allow you to apply logic similar to your "Filter" section, which is then used as a rule for any locations under the filter.
