Hi Prasanthi,

you could use a data view with a new entity “FilterItem” that just holds the enumeration as an attribute. Use context as data source and make sure the enum attribute has a default value.

Place a drop down inside and choose the enum as attribute.

Place your list inside the data view. Use a new microflow as data source. In this microflow you use the entity from the data view and retrieve all “ListViewItem”s that have the corresponding value.

To apply changes that are made to the filter, add an on-change-event to the drop down. Change on-change to show a page and pass the “FilterItem” as parameter (that will be done automatically).

Microflow:

I had a quick crack at getting a drop-down filter working on list views and also could not quite get it.  Have you tried using the new Data grid 2 widget?  It looks like it is possible to achieve what you need with it here:
