The customer noticed that after upgrading to the ITMS 8.6 release certain pages are auto-populating values under the "Search" field. It is not causing a functionality issue but it is becoming an annoyance because it is causing confusion to users when targets are populated. In most cases appear as if there is not one (blank because it didn't meet the search criteria).
