Disable LIKE Search in Web App?

We are using the standard Map Tools template for a web app and have enabled a search by parcel number, with 
suggestions enabled. Despite setting it to exact match, the search executes a LIKE search.

Since our parcel layer contains nearly 2.4 million
this returns results extremely slowly, even though the
field is indexed. Besides, no one searches for a parcel by
numbers that may occur anywhere in the string. Is
there a way I can alter this behavior? Here
is the relevant code behind the search set-up.

"searchConfig": {

   "sources": [


          "flayerId": "Landlocked_Parcels_2772.0",

           "url": "",

          "name": "Parcel (AIN/APN) Search",

          "id": "dojoUnique12",

          "enable": true,

          "enableSuggestions": true,

          "searchWithinMap": true,

           "exactMatch": true,

           "placeholder": "Parcel Search",

          "searchFields": [



       "maxSuggestions": 9,

       "displayField": "",

       "suggestionTemplate": ""



   "activeSourceIndex": 1,

   "enableSearchingAll": false
