Support filtering on columns with encoding

Filtering in subscription does not work if target encoding is involved. We need this feature to be able to filtering on the source system to reduce the replicated data volumn. Otherwise many records have to be processed by IIDR to the target system that are no necessary and have to be deleted afterwards.

    IBM Update: Thank you for submitting this enhancement request. We have evaluated it and deem it valid. At this time, we will not be adding it to our roadmap. We propose that the customer should try to create a user exit in their filtering to write the code for what they are trying to achieve. Thank you.
