Jira Database Custom Field: A way to disable autocomplete?

Here is my issue:

When using database custom fields for an account number, the autocomplete takes too long because as I start typing the first digits, the autocomplete begins to search for any account number that consist of those numbers, and it's looking through over 40000 rows of data. Is there a way to disable autocomplete and instead use the field as a search string? Meaning, I do not want it to search the database WHILE I am inputting the value. I want to be able to type in the entire account number and then have it search the database afterwards.

Nevermind, found the solution:

Create a separate text custom field, and use its custom field ID in the SQL query

Hi Mike

Just a quick question : Child Custom Fields are only based on Database Fields, not on text custom fields. How did you configure the Child Custom Field?
