Improvement in Data connections filter in UI

In the Spectrum Discover web interface under "main menu" -> "Data Connections" -> "Connections" a filter would be very useful especially because we are already dealing with more than 300 data sources. At the moment it is very cumbersome to find a data source by name. It takes some time to extend the table from 20 to 100 entries then scroll down, jump to next 100 entries, scroll again, ... The option to add a filter would be very useful to all columns in all tables in the web interface. Please have a look at tables in Excel or in Google sheets.
