Bugs: ATLAS-1905

Repository: atlas


As a business user it has taken me days to understand why my UI search queries were 'unstable'
- it turns out the UI is unclear!

The search interface must be clear to business users. What we actually have is:

Basic search

. Search By Type
. Search By Tag
. Search By Query

Advanced search
. Search By Type
. Search By Query

So it looks as if the Advanced search has fewer options than the basic!

...but worse, the two aren't analogous despite having the same lables. 

A 'Search By Query' in Basic return many results, but 'Search By Query' in Advanced returns
1 for hive_table where qualifiedName='db_name.table_name@clauster_name'.

Only by reading JIRA tickets here did I realise that Basic was a full text search whereas
Advanced as DSL.
