2.13 Modifying or Preventing Synchronization of Specified Items

If you are familiar with XSLT, you can configure the GroupWise Connector to modify or drop specified items. The sample filter below drops items that contain a specified subtype or that have a subject equal to a specified string. With a little XSLT knowledge, you can modify this sample filter to meet your needs.

  1. Create the following directory:

  2. Copy the following sample filter into a text editor:

    <?xml version='1.0' encoding='utf-8'?>
    <xsl:stylesheet version='1.0' xmlns:xsl='http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/
    <xsl:variable name="subtype" select="//*[local-name()='subType']"/>
    <xsl:variable name="subject" select="//*[local-name()='subject']"/>
    <xsl:template match="node()|@*">
      <xsl:if test="not(contains($subtype, 'SearchText') or 
                    contains($subtype, 'SearchText') or 
                    ($subject = 'put_the_subject_here'))">
          <xsl:apply-templates select="node()|@*"/>
  3. Fix any wrapping problems that you might see as a result of copying the text from the documentation into a text file.

  4. Save the text file as sourceCustomSample.xslt in the new groupwise/filter directory.

  5. Modify the file to identify the items that you want the GroupWise Connector to drop.

  6. Save the sourceCustomSample.xslt file, then exit the text editor.

  7. When you are ready to put the new filter into effect, rename sourceCustomSample.xslt to sourceCustom.xslt, then restart the GroupWise Connector.

  8. (Conditional) If you need to remove the new filter, rename the sourceCustom.xslt file to a different name, then restart the GroupWise Connector.
