    Where do "Other Users" filter settings get stored?

    JacobatTheNewSchool
      Hi,

      When I apply a filter to the "Other Users", where does this information get stored? Is there a settings or configuration file on my machine that saves this information? Could someone please tell me the absolute path(s) and file name(s)?
      thanks//jacob

          No - you didn't provide anything about your environment or your sql developer version.

          Look for a file named 'product-preferences.xml. On my WinXP system it is at
          C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Application Data\SQL Developer\system3.2.20.09.87\o.sqldeveloper.11.2.0.9.87
          You will find some other preference and properties file in the same folder.

            Any Windows absolute path would do. Sorry I forgot to state my OS.

            On Windows 7 the path is:
            C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\SQL Developer\system3.2.20.09.87\o.sqldeveloper.11.2.0.9.87

            I found the file. Thanks!

            It's interesting that when the friendly name of the connection changes, it leaves orphan filter markup items in this file. I found a lot of "old" filters saved here. It made me wonder why friendly name changes of the connection do not cascade into this file if filters were applied.
            thanks//jacob
