I'm trying to do a search for *40075* inside azure folder search box, and was wondering how I can do a real wildcard search from the folder search box, and how.

  • Did you find a way to do this?

  • I guess the reason is because this type of search has better performance and less load for their servers. Jan 16, 2018 at 10:27
