hi all,
i have a drop down list box which displays the host names. but i want to filter the hosts that are displayed based on the host names.
For Ex: I have hosts named
ABC_1
ABC_2
DEF_1
DEF_2
Now i want the drop down bow to display only ABC_* Is this possible?
My current xml code is

"populatingSearch fieldForValue= "host" fieldForLabel="host">
| metadata type=hosts | hosts = "ABC_*"
/populatingSearch>"

But this is not working as expected. Kindly help.

Your idea worked, with a very small correction though. Here is teh one that worked:

| metadata type=hosts | search host="HPSM_QA_*"

Its search hosts and not search hosts

anyway the idea is your and all the credit is to you.
Thanks So much
