Improve search capabilities in service studio - WildCards and/or regular expressions

Service Studio
On our radar

Sometimes you just need to search for elements whose name is similar or match a pattern:


examples:


1)Search all server actions whose name contains "client"  (search by string "%client%" or "*client*")

or 

2) search all aggregates whose name contains "byId"  ( search by string "%byId" or "*byid")


Service studio find (ctrl + F ) dialog and find and replace dialog (ctrl + R) doesn't allow developers to search for patterns :(

I could have sworn I made an Idea about this a while ago, but I didn't! I have needed this for a loooong time.

Hey Rui,

Thanks a lot for your idea!

It could make the IDE more robust like others as Visual Studio that has a robust Find and Replace mechanism.

Hi,


when searching with ctrl+f you always get more than you wanted, because it's searching partially. so when you look for a specific container named "pos" you also get everything with position.

This is not what you want and you want to be able to restrict the search only to look for full-match or partially.

Hi, 

this is a great suggestion although is not yet in roadmap, we can use this idea to improve the search in the future.


Thank you for your feedback, and keep sending more :)
