Allow search custom fields on a custom user model

See original GitHub issue

Is your proposal related to a problem?

Current wagtail admin user search only allows search on four hard-coded fields: username, first_name, last_name, and email. Would be good if developers can specify custom fields via User.search_fields.

Describe the solution you’d like

If User.search_fields exists, join extra fields to the search term.

    if 'q' in request.GET:
        form = SearchForm(request.GET, placeholder=_("Search users"))
        if form.is_valid():
            q = form.cleaned_data['q']
            is_searching = True
            conditions = Q()

            for term in q.split():
                if 'username' in model_fields:
                    conditions |= Q(username__icontains=term)

                if 'first_name' in model_fields:
                    conditions |= Q(first_name__icontains=term)

                if 'last_name' in model_fields:
                    conditions |= Q(last_name__icontains=term)

                if 'email' in model_fields:
                    conditions |= Q(email__icontains=term)

===>      # TODO:  check search_fields  and join it.

            users = User.objects.filter(group_filter & conditions)

Describe alternatives you’ve considered


Additional context

One issue is that the matched content is not visible via the user listing, but developers can just override the list.html to show custom fields.
