Add new filter option "contains"

When searching in a SMAX module via filters, it should be possible to filter for a specific text fragment within the record. For example when searching a specific CI, I would like to filter for all Servers that contain "23" in its Display Label.


Unfortunately this is not possible in the 2018.05 release as I can only select Starts with / Is empty / Is not empty. It would be highly valuable to have a Contains filter option, especially in regards to the different naming conventions within an organization.

My customers are really complaining about that:




They are used to do that with SM and now that they are in SMAX they can't.
