If a stock portlet, list view or user-defined portlet has the potential to return a large amount of data upon clicking the 'Show All' button performance can be impacted in the system. To mitigate the use of this button, it can be removed by adding a required field in the configuration of the Filter Section.

The field that is configured as 'Required' can be any available field. When a 'Required' field is configured in the Filter Section, it will ask for a default value. Once the field has been configured and saved, this becomes the system default filter criteria and you will no longer see the 'Show All' button.

If you desire to configure a required field that will always have the same default value and you do not want the field visiable for end-users to change the value, you can elect to hide the field in the filter configuration.
