1.16 Name Filters

In many of the tab management panes and in some of the dialog boxes within the Oracle VM Manager Web Interface there is an option to provide a Name Filter. For large deployments where many items pertaining to the current view may be listed, it can be difficult to find and select the objects against which you want to perform an action. The Name Filter field is designed to make this process easier by allowing you to specify search criteria to filter the displayed results.

In tab management panes, the Name Filter field is positioned just below the tabs alongside the toolbar. In the Find dialog available on many tabs, this field is labelled Name.

The input field is case-insensitive and accepts wild card characters such as * (multiple character variations) and ? (single character variation). For example, a typical filter used in the Select File Systems dialog may look like this: nfs*vol?/repo*.

A submit button marked 'Go' is presented to the right of the Name Filter input field. Click on this button to trigger the filter action. Alternatively, while the Name Filter input field has focus, you are able to hit the Enter or Return key on your keyboard to trigger the filter action.
