MagicSearch does not filter by localized options

Bug #1638178 reported by Eddie Ramirez
This bug affects 1 person
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
OpenStack Dashboard (Horizon)

Bug Description

How to reproduce:

1. Set a different language than English (Tested with Spanish)
2. Go to Project->Compute->Images
3. Open filters and select a facet with options, e.g. "Status".
4. A menu opens with a set options (note: translated options). Type "activo" (spanish word for active).
5. See that no matches are found since "activo" is not a valid filter option in the API.
6. Try using "active" and now it works

Showing the localized options might confuse the user as they may think is a valid option but it's not. However, I believe we should keep the options localized.

What seems to be happening is that if you skip the dropdown options, and type out the word, it checks that text literally against the api filter. So even under a Spanish locale, typing out "active" will produce the correct result, but "activo" won't.

The only way to practically improve this is block arbitrary user input in magic search when a dropdown is available, so they don't manually type it.

I cannot reproduce this when I set the language as Chinese(Mandarin).
