How to: Use the Project Filter

Applies To: Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R3, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 Feature Pack, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012

You can use the project filter function to set up criteria for searching the Application Object Tree (AOT). The objects that are found by the search are automatically included in your project.

  1. Create a new project.

  2. Double-click the project to open it.

  3. Click the filter icon Projects window on the project toolbar to open the Project Filter dialog box.

  4. Select Append to save the contents of the current project before new objects are added. Select Overwrite to delete the project's former contents before new objects are added.

  5. Click one of the following buttons (under Grouping) to define how the system should group the objects in the project:

    • None – Adds objects directly to project node

    • AOT – Groups objects in nodes similar to the AOT (classes, forms, menu items, and so on).

    • Per user – Groups objects in nodes labeled with user identification.

  6. Click Select to define a query.

  7. Click OK to save the query and close the dialog box. The query is saved so that you can modify it later and re-create the project.

  8. Click OK in the Project filter dialog box to generate a project according to the query defined.
