How can we improve Configuration Manager?

Rework the search criteria in the console to match the ADR experience

The search criteria in the console don't allow for including/excluding multiple items based on the same criteria because it defaults to OR in stead of AND.

As an example, I would like to only include items where Title does not contain "Itanium", "Preview" and "Security Only" from the All Software Updates view in order to create a Software Update Group. This is not possible with the combination of the OR and DOES NOT CONTAIN operators.

I would suggest to allow for AND/OR selection, or to allow multiple criteria values on the same line. The filter experience in the Create ADR wizard is much better in this regard.

My suggestion overlaps with at least the following three, but I feel mine goes a bit further, as this limitation also applies to other nodes in the console, not just SU.
