Clearly list the Steps to resolve the issue

First record your script normally and then identify the domains of the objects you do not want in your results from the playback. Follow the steps below to set up a filter that excludes all unwanted objects.

  1. At the beginning of the script add the "Filter" user action.
  2. Enter a name for the filter i nthe "Filter Name" text box.
  3. Make sure the "Turn Filter on" radio button is chosen.
  4. Click the "+" button to add a new criteria you would like to exclude.
  5. You can match the text using three different options from the drop down menu.
    1. Contains - this will match with a url that contains the text anywhere within the url
      • Ex: Contains gomez in http://www.gomez.com will exlude any url that has gomez in it.
    2. Starts with - this will match with a url that begins with the text given
      • Ex: Starts with https will exclude any url that begins with https
    3. Ends with - this will match with a url that ends with the text given
      • Ex: Ends with .gif will exclude any url that ends with .gif
  6. Type in the text you would like to filter out
  7. If you would like to add more than one domain you would like to filter out, add another criteria
  8. There is also an option to filter out only objects or domains so that they are the only ones downloaded. Clicking the "Exclude all URLs not matching the above filters" checkbox will work as an "exclusive or" (XOR) and provide you with only the domains and objects matched in the criteria.
  9. Playback the script and you will have the desired filter applied to it.
