Note: If you only have one subscription, this change doesn't affect you one bit.  Your experience remains unchanged.  In fact, you'll only see the subscription filter UI show-up if you have more than subscription.

Color Coding:

  • When all subscription are selected Filter option will in grey.

  • When at least one Subscription is not selected, filter icon will change to a different color.
