Example

The following example demonstrates typical use of Workflow Engine function filterByCookbook.

A Situation created by the “Description” recipe in the “Default Cookbook“ would produce the following Visualize data:

{
    "visualize": {
        "origin": "Cookbook",
        "cookbook_name": "Default Cookbook",
        "recipe_name": "Description"
    }
}

If you want to check if the cookbook name is Default Cookbook, enter the following:

  • cookbook: Default Cookbook

The UI translates your settings to the following JSON:

{"cookbook":"Default Cookbook"}

The function returns true, since cookbook matches the Visualize data.

Now consider this filter:

{"cookbook":"MyCookbook"}

In this case the function returns false, since cookbook does not match the Visualize data.
