Operators available for filters and queries

The system provides a set of operators for use with filters, condition builders, and encoded queries. The data type of a field determines what operators are available for it.

Table 1. Operators available for condition builders
Operator label Example condition Equivalent query operator Example query
AND [Active][is][True][AND][Caller][is not empty] ^ active=true^CallerISNOTEMPTY
OR condition [Short description][is empty][OR][Description][is empty] ^OR short_descriptionISEMPTY^ORdescriptionISEMPTY
OR filter

All these conditions must be met

[Short description][is empty]

OR all these conditions must be met

[Description][is not empty]


new query

Note: Not all operators are available for all reference types. Depending on the reference you select, you may see a shorter list of operators.
