After upgrade, where filter definitions have not been upgraded automatically, the CMDB Sync page shows a message stating that you must review the filters, and link to the CMDB Sync filtering page where you can do so. This is also shown on the CMDB Sync filter page, along with a further explanatory message and a link to a summary page which shows the legacy filters for review. The message also provides a button which enables you to delete the old configuration once you have created the new filter definitions.

From the CMDB Sync filtering page, click the review link in the legacy filter definition warning panel. The Component Filter Summary is displayed.
