Usability: Filtering Certificates before building the certificate lists
on adding WAF at a client installation with heavy Remote Access usage two usability issues came up:
1) if i try to select the server certificate for the WAF site, the list builds for a very long time and then presents all certificates - in my case ~ 960 User certificates, the local certificates and the three Server certificates I imported... This is let's say, "suboptimal"... ;-)
2) The certificate list is sorted case sensitive, which is, again, "suboptimal" - it means that TEST..., Test..., and test... are at three different positions in the list. Combine that with the user certificates and searching for a certificate you may not even know the exact name ist a little nightmare... ;-)
A rather simple solution to both would be to a) filter out the User certificates before building the list, and b) sort the list case-insensitive, which both should be easy to do...
What do you think?

This one, in my point of view, almost qualifies as a request to fix. User certificates cannot be used in publishing rules, so qhowing them in a drop down list is a bug. Voting for this shouldn;t cost me any votes.
