Is it possible to filter channels from a custom map object?




I've been using the 'Channels' data table map object.

I've made a copy of it, and would like to tweak it so I can filter out individual statuses (ie. 'Warning', 'No Data'), etc. of the channels within it.

I know you can use filter_status for filtering individual sensors out of a map object, but what about channel filtering?

Hi there,

Unfortunately, that is not possible as channels do not hold or have a status. They just hold information that can change the sensor status, but the channel itself only has values.

Best regards.
