You use repository filters to automatically perform specified operations on resources whenever these resources are accessed. Repository filters can affect the content, the properties, the visibility, or the URIs of resources in a repository.
You can use the following types of filter:
You can define the set of resources to which a repository filter is applied by specifying repositories, paths, and, for some filters, MIME types and file name extensions.
Filters of the same type can be cascaded. That is, you can apply several filters to the same resources. The order in which cascaded filters are applied is determined by the filter priorities.
A number of repository filters are preconfigured in the standard configuration.
To change the configuration of existing filters or to create new filters, choose Content Management → Repository Filters. Then choose the relevant filter class.
