Show Partial Match and Case Insensitive Matches in Node Group Selection Field

Show Partial Match and Case Insensitive Matches in Node Group Selection Field

We have a large number of node groups defined... in fact hundreds. Right now if you want to select a node group in, for example, the node inventory screen, when you start to type you are presented with matches. This only works however if what you type is an exact match of the starting characters and in the exact case of the node group name. I would like this field to perform partial, case insensitive matches and present those choices as well. If for example I have groups called:

NW Routers
SW Routers

I would like to be able to type 'router' and be presented with all of those options. Today, at least in 10.30, typing 'router' would present nothing. With so many groups sometimes I can not remember the exact name of what I am looking for and rather than being able to simply use a built in search I have to go to object groups and set up a filter to find the name. This is a very, very clunky way to have to do this for something that should be easy.

Completely agree with this idea.  Search functionality is poor across the applicatoin and case sensitivity is painful with groups and names.  Having to rely on a filter to find what you need is cumbersome and inconvenient.
