Comment 1 Itamar Heim 2012-06-04 06:00:53 EDT
is this a regression from the WPF search in the UI?
(iirc, search has a flag if to perform case sensitive or not, and iirc, UI is supposed to be case in-sensitive)
Comment 2 lpeer 2012-06-04 08:01:25 EDT
I think this functionality changed when moving from ms-sql to postgres.

I see we have a way to configure case sensitivity in the code, in the search parameters the user can use SearchParameters.caseSensitive false (the default value is true).

I am moving this bug to the UI, for it to use case insensetive search.

einav - iirc, we were supposed to have a checkbox if to make search case sensitive or not?

You have suggested it a number of times in the past, however no decision was ever made on the matter AFAIK.
Livnat is right - this functionality was changed due to ms-sql-to-postgres migration. However, this is not a bug - the search is case sensitive by design since 3.0 (see Bug 710146).

I am turning this bug into an RFE for adding a "match case" check-box in the search.

* Note that turning search to case-insensitive is extremely bad when in tree-context, in case you have objects within the system that have the same name with a different case.
E.g. if I have DC "aaa" and DC "AAA", for case-insensitive search when standing on the "aaa" DC, results for "AAA" DC will also return, which is wrong - need to think about it.

Closing old bugs. If this issue is still relevant/important in current version, please re-open the bug.
Comment 7 Oved Ourfali 2013-11-13 06:52:45 EST
The posted patches change the search to be case-insensitive, as it makes more sense and it is more user friendly. Adding another configuration for that would have made the UI more cumbersome and confusing.

This change brings up tree-related issues, as the tree searches are dependent on the case-sensitive name DCs and Clusters, thus in order to solve it, we now  prevens creating two DCs/Clusters with the same name but with different case.
Comment 8 Einav Cohen 2013-12-04 10:54:38 EST
As stated in Comment #7, the solution changes the GUI search to simply be case-insensitive (without adding a check-box or anything like that) -> changing subject accordingly.
