Users are unable to identify specific ports in Equipment Reservation window.
When attempting to reserve a port using an Equipment Reservation, the user is unable to find the specific port they need to reserve if
multiple ports of the same name on the same type of equipment exist in the office.
The search criteria for this window is very limited, so if there are multiple devices of the same type in the office,
the user cannot identify which port is on which device based on the information returned.
The search criteria should be expanded to allow the use of 11 character CLLIs or Network Element Names and show all child equipment for that selection,
making the search to be more efficient.
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Go to Infrastructure Mgmt --> Reservations
2. Add New Reservation --> use Port
3. Enter Network Location: sample: ABNGVAXA
4. Enter Node Address: BP-001 <sample criteria to limit results>
User cannot identify which port is on which device based on the information returned.
