The application object filter restricts access to application-specific
data that is not owned by the running application. Application owned data
includes skill groups, services, application paths, and routes. The application

Access to the application object filter is restricted. You must use a
super user password (case sensitive) to enable or disable the application
object filter. This password is set as "password" during installation.
Normally enabled, the application object filter prevents
administrators from creating or editing application-specific skill groups,
services, application paths, or routes in the Configuration Manager. You would
want this enabled since creating or editing the preceding application-specific
Unified ICM could cause the application to become out of sync with
Unified ICM. These items must be created and updated in the application
requiring them, and not in the system software.
Disabling the application object filter allows administrators to
create, delete, or edit application-specific skill groups, services,
application paths, and routes from the Configuration Manager tools. You might
want to do this if, for example, an application is dead (you cannot access the
application) and application-specific data needs to be removed from the
Unified ICM database. Another example of when you would want to disable the
application object filter would be you need clean up after removing an
