As a user, I need to be able to search for values offered by the filters, so that I actually find the value I am looking for


For each table, the Admin UI offers filters that can be applied to the table at the top-right of the table.
The user first selects a filter and then is presented a dropdown list of values for that filter.

Problem: For some value lists, more than 1000 values can be present in that value dropdown.

The goal of this story is to change the dropdown selection menus so that the user can search for values in the list.

Do you mean "search for" as in no values are initially offered, and as you start typing, matches are shown (auto-complete)?

No, I mean that all values are initially offered and typing will restrict the values offered to those matching what the user has typed.

OK, though at some scale it wouldn't make sense to load everything (say if you had 10,000 series).

This issue focusses on making the currently available filter easier to use. I agree that optimizing for performance would be desirable, but let's make the thing useful first

The PR addressing this issue has been merged. I therefore resolve this issue as "Fixed and reviewed".
