case-insensitive filtering in inventory

today, the devices from inventory can only be filtered by case sensitive queries for name or other fragment. Idea is to implement option to filter case-insensitevly.

MongoDB provides enough expressions to be used to extend filtering options and still keep the performance at an acceptable level.

    Hi Peter,

    thanks for the feedback. That makes a lot of sense. Currently, we do not plan to implement improvements to the inventory query functionality. However, we will keep this idea in the backlog for as soon as this changes.

    Hi Nikolaus,

    we are building our own frontend and would like to filter the list of devices based on multiple criteria. So for example name includes ���test��� and device status is active (device status is stored in a custom fragment). To combine these filters, we need to use an API supported query. The search in Cockpit uses text=������ as argument. Unfortunately, ���text=��� combined with ���query��� don���t work.

    Hi Peter, could you elaborate on the use-case behind this requirement.

    There are two different methods to look for inventory objects. The Mongo DB text search is case insensitive ( This search is used when clicking the search button in the Cockpit or Device Management Application.


Filtering of assets/groups should be case-insensitive

Currently, the filtering of assets/groups is case-sensitive which makes no sense as it makes harder to filter the assets without entering the exact text case. It is highly unreasonable for a user to remember the exact text case of the asset to app...
