In previous TYPO3 versions, there were several problems with Backend search:
Basically, the ‘ctrl’ section of TCA is extended with a new option:
'searchFields' => 'username,email'
Edit ext_tables.php file in typo3conf/ext/yourext directory, find your table, and add to its ctrl section searchFields property as comma separated list of fields to search in:
$TCA['tx_yourext_table'] = array( 'ctrl' => array( 'title' => 'Title of your table', 'label' => 'title', 'tstamp' => 'tstamp', 'crdate' => 'crdate', // etc... 'searchFields' => 'title, other_field, yet_other_field', ), );
