int ARGetListFilter(
   ARControlStruct *control,
   ARNameType schema,
   ARTimestamp changedSince,
   ARPropList *objPropList,
   ARNameList *nameList,
   ARStatusList *status)

Input arguments


The control record for the operation. It contains information about the user requesting the operation, where that operation is to be performed, and which session is used to perform it. The user and server fields are required.

To specify whether to search for an object's real or resolved name, use the AR_SESS_CONTROL_PROP_API_OVERLAYGROUP variable of the ARSetSessionConfiguration function (see ARSetSessionConfiguration). For calls that use field or view IDs, the search is performed on the real or resolved name of the associated form.

If you do not use the AR_SESS_CONTROL_PROP_API_OVERLAYGROUP variable, the BMC Remedy AR System server uses the default overlay group at run time. For information about configuring the default overlay group, see the description for Overlay-mode in Configuration settings N-R.


The name of the form to retrieve filters for. Specify NULL for this parameter to retrieve filters for all forms.


A time stamp that limits the filters retrieved to those modified after the specified time. Specify 0 for this parameter to retrieve filters with any modification time stamp.


List of server-managed object properties to search for. Returns all filters that match the object properties, for example, the application owner. See Server-managed object property tags.

Return values


A list of zero or more (accessible) filters that match the criteria defined by the changedSince and objPropList parameters. The system returns a list with zero items if no filters match the specified criteria.


A list of zero or more notes, warnings, or errors generated from a call to this function. For a description of all possible values, see Error checking.
