We have to filter cases with a particular status of work object depending on key words entered. Example, if the user enters status as "Open" we have to show work items related to all Open statuses like "New**","Inprocess**" , "Pending**" etc. So we have to capture them in a value list based on the key word entered and pass the value list to report definition using "StartsWith".
I understood what you said. But there might me few scenarios where filtering after the results were fetched might suit. As we say Listview is deprecated, there might be some listviews which should be replaced by Report Definitions exactly the way they were coded before. So it would be helpful if someone let me know whether this option is completely removed from Report Definition. If not removed, help me understand how to achieve that.
