Home Asset Import

Searching Hardware Assets window in Asset Import Excel plugin is broken

Hi Guys,

We did notice today that we have been using _ and % in the search window in the Asset Import Excel, but we continiously got to many results.

After some testing is always seems to do a "contains" anything you enter.
If I search for "BANA%" it will also return "BIBANANA", what is the use of offering wildcards if the code just ignores it.

Is there a way to solve this, some checkmark somewhere in the settings I have missed?

Thank you guys.

    Great question Dennis.
    I think from the silence that your question has provoked it is easy to see it's not something many people have noticed. It's nice to know users like yourself are using Asset Excel in powerful ways to manage their data.

    I have just done a test in my lab and found the same thing. 
    There are 4 Hardware assets in my lab that contain NAS in some form or another.


    All of these are returned for all of the following search criteria
    • NAS
    • NAS%
    • NAS_
    • %NAS
    I will pass this on to the application owner and see if this is "By Design" or not.

    I'm curious to learn if this is "By Design" or if I can expect an update in the near future.
