The 'Name' field should not be a mandatory filter in the Global Search page

Currently the Name is made mandorty filter in the GS page. This should not be added in the filters. Say, there are thousands of assets registered. In such cases, not sure how Name field will be helpful in searching. Also, thousands of records will have to be loaded in the drop down.

    We are evaluating better display options for the UI in this area. We will take this idea into consideration during the next set of updates to the Global Search results UI.

    Currently, since the name is a mandatory field, the only way to remove it as a filter is to do so in the Asset configuration in the config file. Just set filterable=true for the name attribute in the config yaml file.
