The default behavior of simple filters is that they search for all entries, which contain the string that you typed. However, if you have a lot of data, this will significantly slow down your searches. If you know that in most cases you will be happy with a search result that exactly matches your search string, you can change the application's configuration (per partition).
To change the default configuration:
- Go to Administration > Configuration > Advanced Configuration Options.
- Add the property "defaultTextMatchStyle" and set its value to "exact". The property accepts values "exact" and "startsWith".
- Reload the application.
Note: This change will affect all tables (except for those that already had special behaviour) in the application. It is not possible to apply this behavior only to selected tables.
