History and recorder excludes/includes


Considering that history component uses the recorder component, is it enough to specify my includes/excludes just under history's configuration or I have to repeat it under recorder's configuration section too?


I let the recorder record everything:

# Recorder
  purge_days: 21

And then I have separated, more complex logbook and history configuration files.

It depends if you want it recorded and not shown. The history only shows what is recorded, so if you exclude things from the recorder they will no longer show in history once they are purged from the database.

Thanks @jjmontesl and @bbrendon. Actually, after I played a bit more with the config what @bbrendon says becomes clear: history is like a filter for whatever recorder has recorded (which it can have its own include/exclude settings).
