Title: Precedence of filter configurations when both content connector and the project template defines filter configurations for document file import
Description: In some situations, a customer may define filter configurations for files imported in content connector (i.e. choose to import all *.xml files with a specific filter configuration) but also work with project templates which provide a similar feature to choose the filter configuration. It is not trivial which of the two takes precedence in projects that are both content connected and template based.
In short, the template has precedence when both content connector and the active project template defines a filter
configuration for a file. The following are the rules that define this:
1. If there is a filter
defined in the template, that should be used even if there is a filter
defined in the CC filter
page. (ie. Template filter
should override the CC filter
2. If there is no filter
defined in the template, but there is a filter
in CC, the CC filter
should be used.
3. If there is no filter
in either the template nor the CC, the file should use the default memoQ filter
, or if there is no such filter
(eg. *.rc) then file should be skipped.
4. If the project is not template based, the filter
in CC should be used, if there is no filter
, the default filter
should be used, if there is no default, file should be skipped.
