A new window will show up. From here we can create our custom filter


  • Scope: Where this filter will apply, The more number of objects you add to the scope will reduce the amount of fields common between them to be able to search by, like if you select as scope address and addressgroups you can search only by name, tag and description because those are the fields in common, if you only select address all the fields related to address can be used to search like ipaddress, cidr, etc...
  • Field: the field we want use to filter
  • Operator: It can be equal, or contains, etc
  • What to search: Text we want to search on the selected field.
  • to CREATE the filter click on the plus button
