Impossible to use clipboard page property in report definition



In a report definition, a clipboard page property is referred as column source in filter.
The property exists in an existing clipboard page and the page is mentioned in the "Pages & Classes" of the report Definition Rule

Error Messages

When the report definition is saved the following message : "Filter Name: This is not a valid property, or this is a property that cannot be used here." appears.

Steps to Reproduce

Create a report.
Add a filter on clipboard page property.
The column source is this clipboard property

Root Cause

This is by design. Filtering can be done either on the proporty that belongs to same 'Applies To' class of the RD or from a joined class. 


It is suggested to refer an existing propoerty in the Filter and validate it against the value of a property peresnt on any clipboard page.
This property value will act as the filter criteria.
