These sections are provided for reference, most users should create filters using the UI.

Filter rule sets are collections of filters combined together with an operator.

Each individual filter has a condition, criteria and an operator. Condition/Criteria pairs are combined together with an AND or OR like a simple equation to determine if an RRPair is included. The basic format is:

"id":"<unique ID>",
"operator": "<OR|AND>",
"conditions": [
"operator": "<OR|AND>",
"filters": [
"include": <true|false>,
"operator": "<CONTAINS|EQUAL>",

Line 2 is an ID that must be unique in Speedscale Cloud.

Line 3 must be either OR or AND and will dictate whether all of the following conditions are or'd or and'd together.

Line 4 starts an array of conditions that must be satisfied for a RRPair to be included.

Line 6 determines whether the block of filters starting on line 7 will be ANDed or ORed together.

Line 7 starts an array of filters that must be satisfied

Line 9 determines whether this criteria means that the RRPair is included or excluded if satisfied.

Line 10 can be either CONTAINS if it only requires a substring match or EQUAL if an exact match is required.

Line 11 will be one of the following conditions:

    string Host = 5 [json_name = "host"];
string Tag = 6 [json_name = "tag"];
bytes RequestBodyHash = 9 [json_name = "requestBodyHash"];
FilterRequestJSONBody request_body_json = 12 [json_name = "requestBodyJson"];
FilterRequestXMLBody request_body_xml = 13 [json_name = "requestBodyXml"];
TrafficDirection Direction = 16 [json_name = "direction"];
string Tech = 17 [json_name = "tech"];
string L7Protocol = 22 [json_name = "l7protocol"];
string NetworkAddress = 23 [json_name = "network_address"];
string Service = 24 [json_name = "service"];
string Cluster = 25 [json_name = "cluster"];
string Namespace = 26 [json_name = "namespace"];
google.protobuf.StringValue OptURL = 27 [json_name="optUrl"];
google.protobuf.StringValue DetectedCommand = 28 [json_name="detectedCommand"];
google.protobuf.StringValue DetectedLocation = 29 [json_name="detectedLocation"];
google.protobuf.StringValue DetectedStatus = 30 [json_name="detectedStatus"];
TimeRangeFilter TimeRange = 31 [json_name="timeRange"];
HeaderFilter Header = 32 [json_name="header"];
HTTPReqXPathFilter HTTPReqXPath = 33 [json_name="httpReqXPath"];
HTTPReqSOAPXPathFilter HTTPReqSOAPXPath = 34 [json_name="httpReqSoapXPath"];
