Filtering is the way a request XML packet indicates to which objects to apply an operation. Parameters nested in the filter node are called filtering rule.
The filter node is presented by the RoleSelectionFilter complex type (
role.xsd). Its graphical representation is as follows:
It specifies a role ID. Data type: integer.
It specifies a role name. Data type: string.
If you use this filtering rule parameter, the server returns roles that are owned by the Administrator. Data type: none.
The following filter matches roles by ID:
<filter> <id>124</id> <id>127</id> </filter>
The following filter matches roles by names:
<filter> <name>Webmaster</name> <name>Accountant</name> </filter>
