Enhancement Needed: SEARCH box not starting from current folder... instead starting from ROOT/Home

I'm not sure if there's just a configuration that needs to be set.  The Search box for PBIRS is searching from Root/Home and not on from the current folder location and traverse down.  Some users don't have "Browser Role" on Home but only has browser role in subfolders.  How do you configure the SEARCH functionality to start from the current location and cascade down to its subfolders?  Users are getting user permission issue because the search function is starting at HOME and it doesn't have the role set at that level.

If this is by design... can it be updated in the future to START the search from the current folder and cascade down to its subfolders?

 

BTW... if you make some tweaking to the URL generated by the search function, it actually works that it search from the current folder.  For example:

http://servername/Reports/search/?filter=StringSearch

vs 

http://servername/Reports/search/FOLDERNAME/SUBFOLDERNAME/?filter=StringSearch

Hi, 

According to my test and research, it seems that the search box on the right and corner of the page is the same and is always a global search, it’s a function by design in my opinion.

If you still have a question about this function, I think you can go to the Power BI Idea to submit a new idea so that people with the same idea can vote for you. I will also vote for you.
