Currently the group search in azure active directory is done on the base of “Starts with”
I'd like to have extended search capabilities, like "include" "end with" "exclude" and so on
Thank you for your feedback! Our feature team is happy to announce that we’ve released the Enhanced Groups experience preview which includes improvements for search, sorting, and filtering of groups. This preview adds capabilities like substring search on groups lists and new member search.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE improve the ability to search and filter in Enterprise Applications (and all blades, for that matter) with more than just "starts with" criteria. I can't tell you how routinely this is a pain to find the app I'm looking for because you don't have basic search capabilities in here. Thank you!!

This is super important to us - I can't believe there isn't some kind of wildcard search capability.
