Do not set dirty flag when only filtering in view data of an entity

Aggregates & Queries
Out of the scope

Many times i just want to filter and view some data in an entity.

But OutSystems will then flag the module as edited, although nothing has changed in the module.

If one doesn't pay attention to it, you start doubting if you changed something or not.

It would be better to not set the module to 'changed' in this use case.

Hey Daniel,

A lot of times, developers want to keep filters/sorts they have in their entities' view data. Because of this, we have to persist these changes in the module (that's why the undo). You can still undo the operation if that state is not important to you and you don't want to keep it.
