  • It’s showing the file(com.ust.namespcfilter.ExcludeTemp) inside the Repositry Filter in my portal, I don’t know whether it’s activated or not.  I have restarted my server after this deployment.  I have checked, document inside KM Content, its not filtering the files which I have given(In Filter() method coding filename.endsWith(“.doc”)|| filename.startsWith(“Abc”) like this).    I have checked the same documents from another user(Not having Content Administration Role), eventhough its not filtering the files. 

    Please help me in this regard. 

    Kindly give some solution.
