Searching Customers in a Service Desk Project

When searching on the Customers screen, what user properties is it actually searching against?

I can find someone with a username or email.  Are those the only two properties it searches?

Oh, and this has been reported by others, and of course Atlassian can't be bothered to make this one-line fix.

Well - I'll answer since I was searching to find an answer to a related idiotic behavior.

It seems that IF your customer has a personal name and an email address in the customer list, the search function ONLY searches the name part.

For example, you have a customer listed as 

Joe Customer (

and you search for 'example' you will not find that entry.   Only if you happen to know the NAME and search for Joe will you get a hit.

Alternatively, if the Customer ONLY has an email address, and appears like this in the listing: (

and you search for 'example', you will find it.

How dumb is that?
