Execute Filter Count (POST)

Executes the saved query of the filter by id and returns the count. This method is slightly more powerful then the Get Execute Filter Count method because it allows to extend the saved query of the filter.

Security Consideration

The request body of this method takes a JSON-serialized query. Some query types (e.g., task queries) allow to specify EL expressions in their parameters and may therefore be abused for remote code execution. See the section on security considerations for custom code in the user guide for details.


POST /filter/{id}/count


Path Parameters

Name Description
id The id of the filter to execute.

count Number The number of filters that fulfill the query criteria.
