Hiding Traffic from Specific Hosts

In some occasions, you would like to temporary hide traffic from specific hosts. With Fiddler Everywhere, you can easily create rules that limit the captured traffic so that you can see and concentrate only on the sessions that matter.

Creating a "Hide Traffic From Specific Hosts" Rule

This example shows how to create a rule named "Hide Traffic From Specific Hosts" that hides all captured traffic except for traffic generated from the specified host.

Create a "Hide Traffic From Specific Hosts" rule that sets the following matching conditions and actions through the Rules Builder.

  1. Create a matching condition that uses the "When all these conditions are met any number of times" pattern.

  2. For the matching condition, match by a URL that uses a regular expression for addresses that contain google.com and example.com.

  3. Create a Do Not Show action.

    The Do Not Show action is final. No other action or active rule placed lower in the rules queue will be executed.

This sample Fiddler rule hides all sessions containing google.com or example.com in their URLs.

Creating "Hide Traffic From Specific Hosts" rule

Once the rule is created, enable the Rules tab, toggle the rule switch, and start capturing traffic.

Activating the "Hide Traffic From Specific Hosts" rule
