Ability to filter database groups by database server name

There is currently the ability to filter by database name, but not database server name.  In our azure environment, we have plenty of databases with the exact same name, but are located on different database server names.  Adding this filter helps us track the exact database we are trying to resize and makes group creation significantly more easy.

    Updating per Eric:

    I am referring to the database server that our provisioned databases (DTU) are connected to. For instance, see image below:

    You can see the mysotdb-test-cvx database is connected to the database server mysotdb-test-cvx. In this case, the database and database server have the same name. In other instances, that isn’t the case. However, in our database environment we have multiple databases named the same exact thing, but they are located on different database servers. To distinguish between the two databases, we want to filter by database server name as this is needed to fully, uniquely, identify and filter a database.

    Are you referring to the logical server names for the Azure SQL dbs with the dtu or vcore configurations?
