The Filter icon is available at the top right corner. Clicking on it will open a filter where you can specify the desired filtering criteria.

There are several operators available for each condition:

Contains - include the specified tag names where the tag values contain the entered string (substring match, case-insensitive)
Does not exist - exclude the specified tag names

There are two calculation types for conditions:
