filtering collections by _id

Searching for a particular _id in the databrowser's filter fails to return any record as It's a BSON field in mongodb and not a string.

Is there an easy way to apply ObjectID() to my value before the search?

I really wish the console filtering was better than it is. It's been almost useless for me. Searching for _id is the primary thing I would use it for if it worked. Also, being able to sort by date created would be great.
Unfortunately, no, not at the moment. The filtering in the databrowser was designed more with searching in mind, rather that _id based lookup. Your use case is definitely valid though. I'll make sure we incorporate that into the roadmap for console improvements.
modules.collectionAccess is available in the business logic/custom endpoint code, but not in the datastore tab of the web console (https://console.kinvey.com/apps/my_app/addons/datastore/collection/my_collection). I want to filter by _id in the web console NOT the BL



modules.collectionAccess.objectID([objectIdAsString])
