What is affected by a Filtering Rule?

We are setting a custom property to true when a user logs in. If I set up a Filtering Rule to only accept requests that are from users with the property set to true, how will that affect data? Will aggregated data now only show data from users with that property? Will Drills show users without it?

    Hi Daryl,

    In this case, all requests made from new users with a custom property set as false will be blocked and won't reach Countly. Thus:
    1- It will not affect the old existing data, just the new collected data.
    2- New users with the custom property set as false won't be counted at all.
    2- Drill and Aggregated Data will show the old existing data and the new data collected from users with that custom property set as true.
