Add automatic plan allocation feature within product replace operation

When use the replace function to replace a product version with another, the plans need to be mapped / allocated manually. In most cases the plans count and names didn't change between versions. The manual process of allocation is time-consuming and error-prone (sometimes the order of the plans in the drop down does slightly differ).

A button or even a pre selection would be very helpful.

    I understand, that this assumption can not be made. I do not suggest to map the plans by default, just provide the functionality via a button or something similar. As you say in most cases the plan allocation does not change and therefore such a feature would be very helpful, because selecting the corrent plan is time intensive and error-prone (sometimes the order is different, but the plans are the same).

    The suggested search bar would be helpful as well, but solves or improves a different thing.

    Thank you for providing this feedback and we would like more input on this request. We do understand that in most cases the name might not change but we can't not make that assumption. Would having a search bar in the "Select Product" screen of the Replace flow similar to we have in the Migrate Subscription flow be helpful to reduce issues.
