Question & Answer
The purpose of this document is to provide steps on setting up a default filter on Maximo application records in App Designer.
The following steps will help you set up a filter using a where clause in App Designer that will filter the initial records returned in a Maximo application.
Keep in mind this is not an Application Restriction but a default filter.
Being that this is only a filter, you will be able to re-query using the Advanced Search or Quick Find and get around the where clause parameters.

From the Select Action menu select Toggle/Show All Controls
Select the presentation link so that the presentation highlights in green.
Select Control Properties.
