In RDPi from RSE same user created filter name appears for more than one iOS connection

Created a permanent filer in RSE for one iOS connection but all the other iOS connections also displays the same filter name where as expanding the filter shows Empty list. For one iOS connection if I have 10 filters and for a different iOS connection another 10 filters it appears as 20 filters all together for both of my iOS connections.

For one iOS connection if I have created an Object Filter for e.g. ObjFilter1 then for both of my iOS connection it shows ObjFilter1, in the first iOS connection for which the filter is originally created on expanding the filter displays the list of objects, but while expanding from the different iOS connection is shows Empty list.

Now if I create another new temporary filter (only for the connection) in the second iOS connection with the same name (for this case ObjFilter1) then there it shows two filter with same name, one created from previous connection and the other one from current connection.

Thanks & Regards

Use Case:

1. Connect to first iOS from RSE.

2. From the first iOS connection right click Objects then select New option and then Object Filter

3. Create a filter with a specific name say ObjFilter1 and in the second screen of New Object Filter creation wizard uncheck Only create filter in this connection and press the Finish button.

4. By this time you can find the same filter name is created for other iOS connection as well.

5. Now connect to the second iOS from RSE

6. From the second iOS connection right click Objects then select New option and then Object Filter

7. Create a temporary filter with the same name ObjFilter1 (in the second screen of New Object Filter creation wizard DO NOT uncheck Only create filter in this connection) and press the Finish button.

    Thank you for submitting this request. We do see value in the proposed feature, however many other requests have garnered more votes, or otherwise clearly represent a higher degree of value to a broader cross-section of customers. Unfortunately, due to the large number of higher priority requests, we do not believe we will realistically deliver this, and do not wish to leave requests in "under consideration" status for an open-ended period of time.

    Accordingly, we are moving your request to rejected status at this time. You are free to resubmit for reconsideration during a later planning cycle, particularly if you are confident that the request will garner more votes.

    Thank you again for taking the time to offer your suggestion.  Much of our product direction reflects feedback such as yours, and your input is always valued even when we're unable to directly incorporate it.
