event filtering and deployment server

Communicator

If I have a UDP input defined in /etc/system/local/inputs.conf and I create event filters using a transforms.conf and props.conf files that are located in /etc/apps/search/local, will those filters be applied to the UDP input even though the input is defined elsewhere?

When will variables be supported by the inputs.conf file? We need to tag various inputs with a unique identifier in hundreds of our stores. Currently we can't use the deployment server to manage those inputs because it overwrites the inputs.conf file every time a change is made, thus erasing the unique tag for the input.

Thx.

Yes, inputs and index-time transforms are applied to a single global context, regardless of what file they are configured in. (Search-time extractions have more complex scope rules.)
