6 Multi-Master Replication Operation : 6.9 Enabling/Disabling Table Filters on a Master Node

Note: See Section 2.2.12.3 for table setup requirements for a log-based replication system as well as general restrictions on the use of table filters.
Step 1: Make sure the publication server whose node is the parent of the master nodes of the replication system is running and has been registered in the xDB Replication Console you are using. See Section 5.2.1 for directions on starting and registering a publication server.
Step 2: Select the Publication Database node corresponding to the master node on which you wish to enable or disable individual filter rules.
Step 3: Click the secondary mouse button on the Publication Database node and choose Update Filter Rule.
Note: If you wish to enable or disable filter rules on the current master definition node, you must first switch the role of the master definition node to another master node in order to expose the Update Filter Rule option in the master node context menu. See Section 6.10 for directions on switching the master definition node.
Step 4: In the Filter Rules tab check or uncheck the boxes to specify the filter rules to enable or disable on the master node. At most one filter rule may be enabled on any given table. Click the Save button.
Step 5: A confirmation box appears presenting a warning message and a recommendation to perform a snapshot replication to any master node on which you changed the filtering criteria.
Step 6: If you clicked the Ok button in the preceding step, the Filter Rules updated successfully confirmation message appears if the update was successful.
Step 7: It is strongly recommended that a snapshot replication be performed to the master node that contains tables on which the filtering criteria has changed.
Note: The master definition node, which provides the source of the table content for a snapshot, should contain a superset of all the data contained in the other master nodes of the multi-master replication system. This ensures that the target of the snapshot receives all of the data that satisfies the updated filtering criteria.
