*When excluding suspended accounts using the Suspension Filter, please note that backups associated with the backup job for the corresponding accounts will remain on rotation, effectively removing the suspended account's backups each time the backup job runs unless the account is terminated at which point the backups become orphan backups and the Delete orphan backups older than setting applies.

Please visit the following troubleshooting guide for instructions on how to lock backups from your suspended accounts and remove them from your backup job rotation.

Filter Name

This will be used internally your convenience.

Filter Condition

Whatever to included or excluded accounts filtered by this filter.

Filter Logic

By default, all accounts are included in the backup job. Filters allows you to specify which accounts are to be included/excluded. Multiple filters may also be applied and are combined by AND/OR statements.
AND - the condition on EACH filter(s) must be met in order for an account to be included in the backup job.
OR - the condition on EITHER filter(s) must be met in order for an account to be included in the backup job.

Examples:

All Accounts: {acct01,acct02,acct03}
Filter A: Account Filter, Include: {acct01, acct02}
Filter B: Account Filter, Include: {acct01}
Filter C: Account Filter, Exclude: {acct02}

Creating a filter with the following filter type combinations will provide these results:
Filter A AND Filter B => Only {acct01} will be backed up.
Filter B OR Filter C => Only {acct01, acct03} will be backed up.
Filter A OR Filter B => Only {acct01, acct02} will be backed up.
Filter A AND Filter B AND Filter C => Only {acct01} will be backed up.
Filter A OR Filter B AND Filter C => Only {acct01, acct02} will be backed up.
