Removing background "Auto-search" / Search only on hitting Enter?


#1

Hey folks. Is it possible to DISABLE the background search in OwnCloud? I want to only search when I hit enter in the search bar and not have Javascript attempt to do a partial search (which can cause hangs in the system if the files have similar names).

Steps to reproduce

  1. Have a very large number of files (1000+), all with the first few characters the same
  2. Attempt to search for a file by typing the first 1 or 2 characters

Expected behaviour

Tell us what should happen

System should not freeze while the search is performed.

Alternately, the quick search should not delay for a long period if the search result is greater than can be displayed on a page.

Actual behaviour

Tell us what happens instead

System attempts to do a quick search on the first few characters and can freeze for 1-2 minutes.

Operating system: Ubuntu 16.04LTS
