Description (partial)

Symptom:
Currently the orchestration guide documents some basic explanation how to use filters.
It does however not explain customers how to handle filters which appear to be numeric but are not.

For example, when a user wants to filter on disk size, he may put a filter "EQUALS '80'".
This way, a user would only be able to select 80 GB disks.

Upon trying, the user will not see any result -> the filter didn't return any result.

While the list by default only shows disk sizes in GB, the user assumes putting 80 is sufficient, while apparently, UCSD requires the filter to include the "GB" characters.

So the string should be "EQUALS '80 GB'".

This is not clear from the current documentation and the request is to enhance this. Also for other fields which may have the same "problem".
