If you’re using CBI, you must specify which components a worker instance can receive updates about. You do this using component filters. This is in addition to setting up read access permission.
Deprecating CBI and component filters
If you’re using only QBI, you must set up the static component filter in a specific way - see Component delivery and QBI. You can ignore the dynamic component filter.
The static component filter (all entities)
Use the component delivery field (in the bridge configuration section of the worker configuration file) to specify the components that worker instances of a particular type can receive updates about. You can either set
true to allow all components, or you can whitelist individual components using
Static component filtering acts as a whitelist, and takes precedence over CBI. By default, no components are whitelisted. This means that you need to whitelist a component (or set
true) for CBI to work.
The dynamic component filter (specific entities)
You set up dynamic component filters to override the static component filter.
