[Feature request] Searchbox within Configuration

Posted: July 10, 2018 at 2:42 AM Quote #208306
There could be a simple text search within all the Configuration/Settings description text with an instant navigation to the corresponding configuration page.  The search box should be in the header area of all admin view pages in the Configuration menu tree and its child pages.

This would make easier for new administrators to find a setting within the many configuration pages.

All (advanced) settings already searches for individual settings. But maybe you are looking for a certain group of settings, so I would recommend  that in All setting a new column should be added showing the route within configuration section. Example:

Setting name                   Value    Store         Route
addresssettings.cityenabled    True    All stores     Configuration>Settings>Customer settings>Customer form fields                


There are some which would have no route like these:

Setting name  Value  Store  
adminareasettings.defaultgridpagesize  15  All stores  
catalogsettings.defaultcategorypagesize  6  All stores  
catalogsettings.defaultcategorypagesizeoptions  6, 3, 9  All stores  
catalogsettings.defaultmanufacturerpagesize  6  All stores  
catalogsettings.defaultmanufacturerpagesizeoptions  6, 3, 9  All stores

Their route would be something like "None" and a search by this term might show some useful settings and  that are not shown in the other configuration sections

Yes, I am aware of 'All Settings' and out of laziness instead finding a setting in its proper location I many times just set it in All Settings view. That's why I came up with this idea because doing so I never learn where the setting really lives.

Your idea with adding a Route column is very good I think and would be very easy to implement.

What I would add is the ability to search in the description text also and not just in their short system names. This would add to be able not to search the abbreviated names but the more descriptive text, and also the ability to search in any installed language.

That is a good idea. I would add three columns: the setting Name and the Description, which are already localized, and the Route.
There is and old discussion of this which can add some ideas:https://www.nopcommerce.com/boards/t/19294/suggestion-updated-show-hidden-settings.aspx

Maybe there could be another sub-section within Settings section named Other Setting where all hidden settings could be displayed (with their corresponding names and descriptions)
