7.3. Defining Data Filter Clues


Data Filter match parameters describe the specific criteria that NetLink will use to determine if call records should be stored or rejected. Storage/rejection criteria are referred to as "Clues". Parameters can be combined under a single Clue, or divided between a series of Clues to create a logical "OR" condition.

Clues are defined using item 4 on the Data Filter Configuration Menu (Figure 7.1). Each Clue will usually include the following:

•                      Variable(s): One or more variables from the Data Filter Format, which designate the field(s) to be monitored. For example, the variable may represent the call record field for the number dialed.

•                      Operator(s): One or more of the logical or comparative operators described in Section 7.4.

•                      Parameter(s): A description of call characteristics used as the criteria for storage or rejection. For example, specific numbers or area codes for which records will not be stored.


To define Data Filter clues, proceed as follows:

1                     Access the Data Filter Configuration Menu.

2                     Data Filter Action: Type 1 and press [Enter] to specify whether the filter will store or reject records that match Clue Parameters.

3                     Define Clues: Type 4 and press [Enter] to define parameters that will be used as the criteria for storage or rejection. The Define/Edit Clue menu will appear.


a) Clue Name: From the Clue Definition menu, type 1 and press [Enter] to assign a Clue Name. This name can be used to reference a specific clue when altering or deleting clues.

b) Match Parameters: Type 2 and press [Enter] to define the criteria for storage or rejection. Match Parameters consist of one or more variable(s) from the Data Filter Format, one of the logical operators discussed in Section 7.4, and the value that will be matched (e.g. the number dialed).

Example: If the Data Filter Format assigns "A" to represent the call record field for the number dialed, then A=5551212 tells NetLink to check this field for the number 555-1212.

c) Match Parameters may reference several variables, may include logical operators, and may also include logical "AND/OR" conditions. Please refer to the examples in Section 7.7.

4. Display Clue Details: Item 3 can be used to review clue parameters. Type 3 and press [Enter], NetLink will list all defined clue names. Key in the name of the desired clue and press [Enter]; parameters for the specified clue will be displayed.


1                     Edit Clues: To alter an existing Clue, type 5 and press [Enter]. NetLink will list all clue names defined for the current filter. Key in the desired clue name and then press [Enter]. The Define/Edit Clue menu will be displayed, allowing the user to edit clue parameters.

2                     Delete Clues: To delete an existing Clue, type 6 and press [Enter]. NetLink will list all clue names defined for the current filter. Key in the name of the clue you wish to delete and press [Enter]; the clue will be deleted.


Note: Deleted clues cannot be automatically restored.
