Customizing list for grid filter
We have requerment to customize filter for one column. Every row in this column contain string as result of concating values from value list with coma as delimiter. Customer want to see static list with checkbox in in filter popap for this column that appears after clicking on filter icon. When user select some value in this static list and apply filters condition should be considering as "contains any" selected value.
Is there any way to acomplish this. Important thing is Customer want to use standard filter popup with click on standard icon in column header.

Could you share the screenshot/dummy values of the requirement mentioned. I understand that when you click on the column filter, then the static list with checkbox should be displayed. If yes, can you verify the filtering option under Designer Studio >> UI Gallery >> Tables & Grid.
A quick review of the related files reveal that they are final and internal:
Also had a chat with the product owner to confirm that this UI is not customizable.
Design should consider making data model changes and not store the comma-delimited values as a string in the DB if the requirement is to filter by a single value that is contained in the string. Optionally, disabling the filter at the grid header and introduce a filter input element above on the screen to allow users to filter by a common search terms can be considered.
