Are Filters Ignored on Manually Triggered Builds?

I am setting up a build that is meant to be triggered by an external process. I was able to get it working from the code in this article:
https://help.appveyor.com/discussions/questions/305-trigger-a-build

However, what I cannot seem to find is any documentation regarding the filtering of builds using this method.

Are commit/author/etc. filters ignored altogether when APPVEYOR_FORCED_BUILD = true?

I am wanting to verify my understanding and what I am seeing on my side.

FWIW I am using the following and they seem to be ignored when using the API directly:

```
branches:
  only:
  - /\d*\.\d*\.\d*/

only_commits:
  author: /Automation Agent/
```

If this is ignored altogether I would like to remove it from my definition.

Thank you for any context and insight you can provide!

    Correct, filters are ignored when the build is kicked off from either UI or API.
