APAR status

  • Closed as fixed if next.

Error description

  • When searching for items in the new filter dialog, what you type
    is submitted automatically. This causes timing issues when
    searching where if you type in additional characters too fast
    while it already searching for the previous character(s) you
    entered, the search may not return accurate results.
    
    Furthermore, if you search for a value with a space in it, the
    search will treat each half (before and after the space) as
    separate search strings.

    o fix issue (1)
    - open for editing the file
    <install>/webcontent/bi/pat/DefaultSettings.xml and look for the
    setting called SearchDelimiterSelectValues
    - the default delimiter is space i.e. <setting
    name="SearchDelimiterSelectValues" defaultValue="delimiterSpace"
    dataType="enum" profile="true">
    - change the attribute value defaultValue="delimiterSpace" to
    one of the other 4 enumeration values:
    defaultValue="delimiterComma", defaultValue="delimiterPlus",
    defaultValue="delimiterTab", or defaultValue="delimiterNewline"
    - save and close the file and restart the product
    Then, a search on "Colorado Spring" will return only "Colorado
    Springs"  instead of "Colorado Springs" and "Springfield".
