Summary1581: Searching does not match Type field
DescriptionWhen searching for a string, most fields are matched, but notably not the "Tyipe" field.

When I search for the exact name off an object_type I expect that the search matches all objects of that type
Steps To ReproduceLoad a few UPS type objects, making sure that the word "UPS" is not repeated on any other field or the name.

Search for "UPS" and your objects will not show up.

TagsNo tags attached.

This is not a bug: RackTables provides different, more developed means to retrieve this specific information. If you open a page of an UPS object, you can see the object type is a hyperlink, which leads you to a filtered object list. This filter can be further refined and used in the Permissions text if needed. Let me know if you have any other questions.

I am doing exactly what you suggest already, it just feels clunky and counterintuitive. I have about 3000 objects in the DB, to get a list of UPS I need to remember the name of one to get to the object_type link.
If I don't remember the name of any objects of a type, I need to scroll through 3000 items!!!

The only other option is going to the dictionary interface and read the objet_type_id and filter the objects page; this is something that only admins can do (and it is a damn slow way of doing something simple like searching)

You can add the following to the Permissions text to have a permanent shortcut for all UPS objects on the objects filter:

define [UPS] {$objtype_12}

Is this configuration per-user or global?
We have 61 records in our Object_type dictionary and more than 10 users. I can consider adding 61 lines to the permissions config, but not 600 +

This feature works for all users (see also related options FILTER_SUGGEST_PREDICATES and FILTER_PREDICATE_SIEVE in the configuration).

This may improve in future but right now there is a workaround. Closing.
