Changing Search minimum number of terms

I am customizing Alfresco Share 5.0.d and I would like to make the minimum number of search terms 0 in all places where there is a search.

I found the solution in an old forum topic, which is to add the following code to share-config-custom.xml:

       Overridden Search config entries to:
          - remove minimum search term length for all searches.
   <config evaluator="string-compare" condition="Search" replace="true">
         <!– default minimum length for search terms –>
         <!– default maximum number of results for a search –>

       Overridden form-config.xml entries to:
          - remove minimum search term length for people searches.
            <!– WEB-INF/classes/alfresco/site-webscripts/org/… –>
            <type name="association:cm:person" template="/org/alfresco/components/form/controls/authority.ftl">
               <control-param name="minSearchTermLength">0</control-param>
            <type name="association:cm:authority" template="/org/alfresco/components/form/controls/authority.ftl">
               <control-param name="minSearchTermLength">0</control-param>
            <type name="association:cm:authorityContainer" template="/org/alfresco/components/form/controls/authority.ftl">
               <control-param name="minSearchTermLength">0</control-param>

This works perfectly.

However, there is one more place where there is a minimum number of search terms: Manage Permissions (of a document or folder) -> Add User/Group -> Search. The minimum number of search terms here is 3.

How can I configure this to be 0? My last resort will be to change the file authority-finder.get.js, but I know it is not recommended to edit JavaScript files.

Any help would be appreciated.
