Literals Available in Query Builder

Often you might want to use a literal value when building a group using the Query Builder, such as the userid of the currently logged in user. There are some undocumented literals available in the Query Builder that allow you to do just this. Here’s a list of the literals available to you:

Literals used in both clients (using “=” or “starting with” as the operator)

Literals ONLY in the Support Client (using “in” as the operator)

If you want to build a group that displays all accounts created by the currently logged in user, select your field containing a userid, in this case CREATEUSER, then enter :userid as the value and check the box that says use value as literal.
