     // An array SchemaName values for non-intersect, user-owned entities that should not be returned.
     String[] excludedEntities = {

     MetadataFilterExpression EntityFilter = new MetadataFilterExpression(LogicalOperator.And);
     EntityFilter.Conditions.Add(new MetadataConditionExpression("IsIntersect", MetadataConditionOperator.Equals, false));
     EntityFilter.Conditions.Add(new MetadataConditionExpression("OwnershipType", MetadataConditionOperator.Equals, OwnershipTypes.UserOwned));
     EntityFilter.Conditions.Add(new MetadataConditionExpression("SchemaName", MetadataConditionOperator.NotIn, excludedEntities));
     MetadataConditionExpression isVisibileInMobileTrue = new MetadataConditionExpression("IsVisibleInMobile", MetadataConditionOperator.Equals, true);
