Backend search not working for extensions in TYPO3 4.7 version

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',
