A condition builder constructs a condition statement with a series of contextually
generated fields. Condition builders are used in many operations, such as creating filters,
administering surveys, and administering access control.
Condition builder format
A condition consists of three parts:
- Field: a choice list based on the table and user access rights. The choice list can
include fields on related tables by dot-walking.
- Operator: a choice list based on the field type. For example, in the Incident
[incident] table, the greater than operator does not apply to the
Active field but it does apply to the
- Value: a text entry field or a choice list, depending on field type. For example, in
the Incident [incident] table, the Active field offers a choice
list with the values true, false, and
empty, while the Short Description field
offers a text entry field.
The condition builder in the list filter has a different appearance in List v2 and List v3. In UI16,
condition builders in forms can be configured to look and work like the List v3 condition
Condition builder actions
You can add a dependent condition by clicking AND or
OR next to the condition. You can add a top-level condition by
clicking AND or OR on the condition builder
toolbar above the conditions (List v2) or clicking New Criteria (List
v3). You can remove a condition by clicking the delete icon (X) next to the condition (List
v2). In List v3, you click the remove condition icon (⊝) next to the condition.
