Search based on alias fields in dashboards

    As of now we can only search based on the discovered name or display name field for any custom dashboards that we have created. However if you have a custom name alias which is what most of the people in your organisation know the interface or device component by (for eg a IPSLA probe for say from Mumbai-to-Newyork) then unable to search the same as the alias is not update in the DA. Even if we add a custom attribute to the DA for that custom attribute still it does not work. The solution will be extend the search query to include custom attributes created or alias fields for the components.
