To set display filters for the Certification Authority snap-in

  1. Log on to the system as any CA role holder.

  2. Open Certification Authority.

  3. In the console tree, double-click the name of the certification authority (CA).


    • Certification Authority (Computer)/CA name

  4. Click any of the displayed folders except Certificate templates.

  5. On the View menu, click Filter.

  6. For each of the selection criteria:

    • Click Add.

    • In Field, click the field on which to filter.

    • In Operation, click the operation to qualify the filter value for this field.

    • In Value, type the qualification value.


  • To open Certification Authority, click Start, click Control Panel, double-click Administrative Tools, and then double-click Certification Authority.

  • Display filters are essentially a way to make simple queries against a CA's database. By using filters, you can restrict the items displayed in the details pane of the Certification Authority snap-in to items that meet a set of criteria you establish. For example, you can create a filter that will display in the Issued Certificates folder only those certificates that were effective after a specific date.

  • To remove a filter, click it in the Filter dialog box, and then click Remove.

  • To remove all existing filters, in the Filter dialog box, click Reset.

Information about functional differences

  • Your server might function differently based on the version and edition of the operating system that is installed, your account permissions, and your menu settings. For more information, see Viewing Help on the Web.
