The 'not' operator does not seem to work on the domo API for PDP filters?

Anyone run into issues with the 'not' operator on the domo API for PDP filters? The docs show that including false for 'not' on a filter will add a PDP rule that the column quals the value. In this example that Attending = 'TRUE' :

{
  "id" : 8,
  "type" : "user",
  "name" : "Only Show Attendees",
  "filters" : [ {
    "column" : "Attending",
    "values" : [ "TRUE" ],
    "operator" : "EQUALS",
    "not" : false
  } ],
  "users" : [ 27 ],
  "groups" : [ ]
} 

However, including 'not' : true, should reverse the value, such that 'Attending' != 'TRUE'

{
  "name" : "Not Attending",
  "filters" : [ {
    "column" : "Attending",
    "values" : [ "TRUE" ],
    "operator" : "EQUALS",
    "not" : true
  } ]
}

When I try this, it doesn't seem to matter whether I put true or false for 'not' the result is always that the column = value. Here's an example response. However, the test account I used could only see '123 S Street' whether or not the 'not' operator was true or false.

{
    "id": 10143,
    "type": "user",
    "name": "Def Jam",
    "filters": [
        {
            "column": "address1",
            "values": [
                "123 S Street"
            ],
            "operator": "EQUALS",
            "not": true
        }
    ],
    "users": [
        1257996134
    ],
    "virtualUsers": [],
    "groups": []
}

    it sounds like it might be a bug. have you tried sending a message to support?

    Also, you can sniff network traffic in the browser, try watching traffic when you create a PDP policy in the UI. Maybe it structures the request slightly differently.
