Do I need to create a filter per route?


I have been testing out my filters for almost the full day, I cannot get a grasp of what is going on.

This is my automation:

I added filters to check “what day it is” by using the filter “i numeric operators: equals to 3”. If so, day 3 will run. The repeater is set to repeat until maxDays is reached.

What I expect is this, when maxDays = 4 it should stop after the last module in the day 4 branch.

What I got is this, maxDays = 4, the iterator of day 5 and 6 is not activated, but everything after is activated. I thought the filter should stop the process of going both paths.

Do I need to add a filter for each route or is there another way I should do this?

Thanks in advance!

Hi the filters are working fine , but as you can see that you have use the text
aggerating on json module , so it is not aggerating anything but it is continuing anyway but as it finish its iteration so you should put a filter after all of these too ,


Thank you for the reply!

When I want to create a filter, there is no way that I can select the i again.

Any idea how I can do this?

you have to put the filter on text , i will not be access able


OK please apply this filter thats the same logic , it will only goto this side if its for 6 day or not ,

thats for 5 dayrouter you can apply the rest to all ,

thank you


Okay, and what do I put in the textbox after the statement? Can I just put 1?

I am not that familiar with the tool and text aggregator. And want to understand why this is the case.

Check my last message , let me know if you face any issue , thank you


It worked! Thank you. What is the reason I need to have a filter outside the gray area?
