API V2/Reports - Product Name Search Improvements

started a topic 4 months ago


When doing a search for product names in many of the reports (eg. Stock Level Report) and also via the Name= parameter in the API, the search is only doing a left-to-right search, where the first part of the query has to be an exact match for the product name. This is as opposed to finding any product name that contains the search query or a proper fuzzy search.

For example, I have a product called "ABC - DEF":

  • Searching for "ABC" will bring this product up
  • Searching for "DEF" will not
  • Searching for "ABC DEF" will not

This search behaviour is different from the search function in the Inventory section, where all 3 searches above will bring up the relevant product.
