Filter Name

This will be used internally your convenience.

Filter Condition

Whatever to included or excluded accounts filtered by this filter.

Filter Logic

All accounts will be backed up unless a filter is created to exclude specific accounts.
You may use more than one filter type per backup job which will be joined together with an AND or OR statement.
AND - when using an AND statement between two filters the conditions of BOTH filters must be met in order for an account to be included by the backup job.
OR - when using an OR statement between two filters the condition of EITHER filters should be met in order for an account to be included by 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.
