Need to have a search on the Bind to Existing Services screen

When you have over 100 services, that screen takes forever to load. Once you get over say 30 services, you could be able to do a type ahead search for the what you are looking for. Like if you just want the SQL database, you shouldn't have to scroll through 100 services to find that needle in a haystack

    Hi Kevin, this appears to exist for some services. Which services are you using that you need to add this to? Please see the screenshot below.

    I have over a 100 services...named all sorts of weird names.  Need to just type a couple characters to limit to just my 15 Cloudant Databases, or my 3 DashDB Databases.  We should really have the ability in any screen to see that if the data is more than X results...put a search on the top as a default.  This isn't the only screen that can get hard to navigate.
