Help Me Configure My Aura Filters!
Any post that is not about asking for help to set up the aura filters will be removed without warning.
If you want to post comments or feedback, or if you have other general questions, then please create a new thread and post it there.

Rules (back to top)
  • We will *only* be dealing with how to set up auras using the already built in settings (filters). There will be no talk about editing files.
  • There will be *no* reporting of bugs. Bug reports belong in the ticket system.
  • If you want to ask a general question about auras then create a new thread and ask your question there.
  • You need to make sure you're using the latest version of ElvUI before posting here.

Guidelines (back to top)
  • Provide screenshot(s) of the relevant settings page(s). If you want help with the buff auras on the target frame, then include a screenshot of that settings page.
  • If possible, resize the ElvUI config frame so your screenshots include all filter settings. You can resize by click+dragging the bottom right corner of the config.
  • If your post would include a lot of screenshots, then please post them as links to keep the scrolling to a minimum.
  • Explain in much detail how you want the auras of that particular frame to work. Great example can be seen here.

Special Filters (back to top)

Filter Types
Whitelists: Personal, nonPersonal, Boss, CastByUnit, notCastByUnit, Dispellable (includes steal-able), CastByNPC, CastByPlayers
Blacklists: blockNonPersonal, blockNoDuration, blockCastByPlayers
A blacklist filter is only effective against filters that come after it in the priority list. It will not block anything from the filters before it.
Descriptions
Boss: Auras (debuffs only?) cast by a boss unit.
Personal: Auras cast by yourself.
nonPersonal: Auras cast by anyone other than yourself.
CastByUnit: Auras cast by the unit of the unitframe or nameplate (so on target frame it only shows auras cast by the target unit).
notCastByUnit: Auras cast by anyone other than the unit of the unitframe or nameplate.
Dispellable: Auras you can either dispel or spellsteal.
CastByNPC: Auras cast by any NPC.
CastByPlayers: Auras cast by any player-controlled unit (so no NPCs).
blockCastByPlayers: Blocks any aura that is cast by player-controlled units (so will only show auras cast by NPCs).
blockNoDuration: Blocks any aura without a duration.
blockNonPersonal: Blocks any aura that is not cast by yourself.

How Filters Work (back to top)
If the Filter Priority list is empty, then all auras will be allowed through. As soon as you add a filter to the priority list then it will start by blocking all auras, and then only allow an aura through if it passes the filter condition, assuming the filter is a whitelist. If you have 2 filters in your priority list, a blacklist and a whitelist, and the blacklist has a higher priority (is listed before whitelist), then an aura will not be allowed if it is in the blacklist filter, even if it is also in the whitelist filter. If an aura is matched against a filter, then it will stop there and not try to match against any of the remaining filters. This gives you full control over what filters you consider the most important in any type of situation (raiding, pvp etc.).


Examples (back to top)

Block Everything, Except Your Own Auras
(1) Personal

Block Everything, Except Whitelisted Auras That Are Cast By Yourself (custom whitelist filters can be used too)
(1) blockNonPersonal | (2) Whitelist

[ElvUI] Help Me Configure My UnitFrame Auras!

I am having issues with my raid frames. Previously a small icon would show up in the center of a unit frame if some important buff was on them (typically a big CD) now literally every spell shows up and it is impossible to tell what is going on. I have not done much besides the base UI.

I tried blacklisting everything, but now if i click on them, my target frame won't show those buffs either (also I don't like the idea of black listing every buff out there)

I also have the issue of my player frame now showing aura bars that it previously did not (most notably food and flask buffs)

Help?

I play a healer and this are the buffs I want to see. I want to be able to see any external CD thrown by my friends (Hand of Sacrifice, Ironbark, Monk cocoon, Priest wings etc etc) I also want to be able to see when a player uses a defensive CD like Vampiric Aura or Anti Magic Shell or any form of mitigation like Barkskin, even Ice barrier by mages and such.

The idea is that I can see when the other healers use a CD on a player, and when a player tank or dps uses a defensive on itself to mitigate damage, even If it's something trivial like Shield of the Righteous which the tank is using all day I want to see it.

Currently I have the default filters and see everything from food buff to flask buff to bloodlust when used, everything.

OK I have a simple question, trying to make my buffs work the way they used to. I want to show buffs only if they are on a whitelist AND they were cast by me (for example my HOTs but not other people's). Used to be very easy in the old setup, now I have no idea. I add whitelist and personal to the filters but that puts whitelist buffs regardless of who cast them, and any buff cast by me. From the news post this appears to be intended, but is there a way to make it so a buff has to match ALL the filters instead of just one?

Thanks.

If you only want to see defensive buffs then remove all filters and add "TurtleBuffs" filter to the priority list. Now it will only show buffs that are added to that filter. If some buffs are missing then add them to the "TurtleBuffs" filter in the Filters section of the ElvUI config.

Actually I think this is impossible with our current filter options. Thanks for pointing it out, we will come up with something for you.

Update
A new special filter has been added to aura filtering: blockNonPersonal
The intended use for this special filter is to allow you to only show auras from a whitelist filter and only if the auras are also cast by yourself. To achieve this result you will place "blockNonPersonal" filter first, and then your whitelist filter after.

I am also playing healer, and I am so confused and also kinda pissed off, because this update is causing so much trouble for me, haven't been able to run dungeons all day...
I want to see my beacon of light for example in the right up corner, where is it? I want to see debuffs I can dispell as an icon on the frame, not only that the color of the frame changes.Now I am seeing everything, I don't want to see someones food buff or concordance, or even my mage tower buff on the frames... The old system was working perfectly, and now nothing is working for me.
Please halp
