Excluding Bot Traffic

Hi All,


I'm looking to exclude bot traffic by Network Domain. I made sure to set up a test view in order to see what impacts this option might have on data collection, however when I proceed to add a custom filter, Network Domain isn't an available filter option. Also, It appears Service Provider isn't an option as well - unless I misinterpreted the definitions of ISP Organizations and ISP Domain, which are available filter options. Can anyone provide some alternatives on how best to block bot traffic via specific bot profiling.
