A filter in BDC is an annotation of a value indicating how the external system uses a value or what the value should be. The value corresponding to the filter can be used by the external system to filter the results of an operation, get information about the client, or report additional results which are not part of external items. BDC does not apply the semantics implied by filters, except in the case of offline access.
