Default Search Fields

I'd like to know if it's possible to set the default selected fields for searches in IPAM.

When you do a search, by default, all search fields are checked. This has been causing issues with no search results being returned, as the SQL query being generated to search all 500,000 IP Addresses in the IPAM_Node table takes about 50 seconds. This seems to cause the search form to timeout and return no results.

99% of the time, users just want to search for a hostname or IP Address. If we could set these fields as the defaults, it would resolve our problems.

IPAM Version: 4.0.0

Any ideas?

Hi Luke,

this is not possible in IPAM but I took it as a great enhancement for the future re-design and search improvements.
