Capability to configure the default structure filter

Capability to configure the default structure filter

In the Product Structure Browser it is possible save user specific filters and system-wide filters that can be shared with all users. If a user applies a filter this is stored for some time for a specific structure, but it will not be kept when opening another structure. For some use-cases it is beneficial to always start with specific filter other than the default filter.

At our Windchill Installation we use WTPart View Versions to grant specific user groups an alternate "reduced" view to WTParts. This is how we represent an internal customer-supplier relationship. The internal supplier is maintaining the Design View, while the customer is using the "Reduced View" in their structures. This reduced view does not have a BOM, but has for instance a simplified representation attached or specific documents. To see this reduced view the user has to set a specific filter to not see the WTPartMaster in the structure. If a default  filter that lists first the Design View and than the downstream Reduced View could be configured, this customer-supplier interaction would be more seamless.

Windchill 11.1 will support a user selecting a Saved Filter to be used as their Default Filter for PSB.  Note the user should pick a filter that makes sense for a default - that is if they pick a filter that has a specific baseline it might be of no use for other BOMs.

Thank you very much for the implementation in WC 11.1

Looks fine.
