Reproducing the Issue

You can now filter rule functions by entering a search term. For example, if you type "name", the list will be filtered to only display rule functions that contain that word.


Step 1) Got to Admin center => Configure business Rules

Step 2) Create a new rule by clicking on + Icon(it doesn't matter which scenario or object you use to create the rule).


Step 3) In the rule configuration page, maintain the IF part of the rule.

Step 4) Type in the "Select left condition" field a search term, such as "Calculate" and notice the behavior.


Result  => The function section of the popup will be showing selective functions, only those which somehow include the search term.

NOTE: Function section is at the very end, hence you will probably need to scroll down to see the result.
