What are app filters?
App filters are a way for application partners to manage the data that districts share. Many applications only need access to limited data for their integrations. For example, some applications only require section data for specific subjects, while others only need data for schools that have licenses. To resolve this issue, applications can create filters to ensure they receive only the data they need, increasing data privacy and enhancing integration quality.
How do app filters work?
Step 2: Applications apply filters on the district data to manage exactly which data they are receiving, whereby ensuring that only relevant data is synced.
How can we tell that data is filtered?
If an app-side filter is applied to a district, the district will see a "App Filters" tab in the application area of the Clever Dashboard. District admins can view:
Shared Data: the data shared with the application by the district.
Filters: the filters that were applied to the district data by the application.
Final Data: the resulting filtered data that will be synced by the application.
How do I view the data currently shared with the application?
District admins can download a CSV file of schools, students, teachers, or sections that are included in the data shared with that application.
To download these CSV files, click on the application icon from your Clever dashboard. On the Overview page, you'll see box titled "Applications Receives".
You can click the blue download icon next to schools, students, teachers, or sections to download the list of data shared for that data type. These files will display the final data that is shared with the application.
