DataGrid 2 Column filter configuration

I was able to save my datagrid 2’s configuration in an attribute (ServiceOrderView_Config) in a UserDetails entity associated with User, shown below. I have the same setup for a drop-down filter on the datagrid2 with the config saved in the Competency_Filter_Config attribute in the same UserDetails entity. I can see that the filter config is saved in the attribute (highlighted ‘CO2’ string in image 2 below), but the filter itself is not applying the value. Has someone had the same issue and resolved it?

I had to set the default value of the filter to the attribute that the config is saved in.
