Exclusion Lists

An exclusion list defines all values to filter out or ignore for a specific field. You can define exclusion lists directly in the filter.xml file or you can create exclusion lists in text files and reference those files from filter.xml. You should create an exclusion list file for each field for which filters are defined, and you might need to create separate files for a field whose excluded values for SBR processing do not match the excluded values for matching or blocking, for example.
