Creating filters within the DPM console is a great way to manage visibility when it comes to present current status of jobs within DPM.
Filters is also user specifics so there is no way to create a single “filter repository” that all users can leverage…or…there is always a way 😊
The secret recipe is the local roaming profiles of users located in the “C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Microsoft System Center Data Protection Manager” catalogue.
When you create filters within DPM a small XML file is created that is called JobsFilters.XML. Copying this to other users makes it possible to distribute administrative filters to other DPM administrators within the organization.
