So how do I tell if a discard filter has been enabled or disabled?
If filterRequest.disabledUntil is "1970-01-01 ..." the discard rule was enabled.
If filterRequest.disabledUntil is null, the discard rule was disabled.
If filterRequest.disabledUntil is a date other than 1970-01-01, you temporarily disabled the discard rule until a time in the future (when it is automatically reenabled).
Notice what happens when I click on the log lines below. In Screenshot 1 is my discard filter enabled or disabled?
|What about in Screenshot 2?|
If you guessed in Screenshot 1 the discard filter is enabled and in Screenshot 2 it is disabled that is correct!
You can also click on the eyelet on the left-hand side of the filter.Request.filterValue field to view the name of the filter that was enabled or disabled.
