Description

This is a feature request to apply a feature subset using a filter expression on a group of layers.

It would be accessible using the Group context menu in Layers, and this feature is very similar to the "Set Group CRS" item currently available in QGIS 2.4.0.

The limitation of this feature is that all layers within a group need to be filtered using the same filter expression. For example, if a group of layers consists of multiple shapefiles, and the filter expression was "name"='Bob', all layers in the group must have a feature attribute "name". Layers that cannot use a group filter expression should log an error and/or not be filtered with the expression.

The current method is to modify the filter expression for multiple layers using the GUI, which can be time consuming if there are many layers.
