Discard Rules

Last Edit: Apr 04 2020

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

Common Use Case

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.

Parameters

The following discard rules are available:

name

description

discard_rule_default

Discard when activity actor matches the user_id of the feed

discard_rule_actor_with_colon

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
