How to filter an entire group of elements in a structure?

In a structure created with Structure, when I make a grouping by an attribute through the "quick transformations", the information is displayed as folders containing the different grouped elements. My question is if there is any way to filter one or several of these folders, enabling or not their display.

Hello @Victor Crespo ,

David from ALM Works here.

It is possible through the use of a Filter Transformation set to the level of the group you have created.

So for example if you have a "flat" structure, with all of your issues from a project.  And add a Group by Attribute Transformation for issue type, you will end up with a folder for each issue type.

Next, we add a Filter Transformation

  • choose the "Attribute" option
  • set the Attribute to "Summary"
  • Operator to "does not contain"
  • Set the value (I chose "Bug")
  • Filter on level (I chose "Current level")

This filter gets rid of the Bug Folder along with all of its children.  Your scenario will require a different combination of the options, but should still work the same way.

Please let me know if this helps.


Thank you, David. It works.
