Discard Rules

LAST EDIT Feb 09 2021

It is possible to discard activities added to a feed based on certain rules.

Common Use CaseCopied!

One common use case is when users post in a feed that one of their own notification feeds follows. By default, the user gets a notification of their own activity. To avoid this, you can apply a discard rule so that the user's own activities can be filtered out.


The following discard rules are available:




Discard when activity actor matches the user_id of the feed


Discard when the second part of the activity actor split on colon matches the user_id of the feed

To enable this feature, contact support with:

  • the name of the feed group

  • the name of the rule to apply
