[WebView] search should find results that contain(!) the search string

    The search function in WebView (APM) - meaning the dropdown for dashboards in the Console view - needs to be improved. In current versions of WebView entering a search string performs a search for dashboards that start with that string. The Workstation however performs a search for dashboards that contain that string, which is much better and more comfortable to use.

     

    The following screenshot shows the difference between Workstation and WebView when entering "overview" as search string:

    On the left the Workstation shows every dashboard containing that string "overview" anywhere in the name.

    On the right WebView is showing an empty search result, because no dashboard has a name starting with overview.

     

     

    The next screenshot from WebView shows that there are only search results when you enter characters a dashboard is actually starting with:

    Please improve the search in WebView to work rather with a "contains" instead of a "starts with".
