Parameters meaning:

-Filter overrides parameters for selecting applications to process with QOps, allows filtering by following:

  • Application Name
  • Application Id

The multiple masks are supported in a way of repeating the field identifier with a semicolon separator, ex.: -Filter “Name=*ibcs*;Name=*api*,Id=*,Owner=*,Stream=*”-Filter “Name=*ibcs*;Name=*api*”
