     I'm having problem with serverside filtering using autocomplete. Due to fact that Autocomplete is still unavailable at MVC Wrapper for ASP.NET 5 MVC 6, im using following code to initialize autocomplete: 

        var dataSource = new{
            serverFiltering: true,
            serverOperation: true,
            type: "aspnetmvc-ajax",
            transport: {
                read: {
                    url: "@Url.Content("~/api/Get")",
                    type: "GET"
            schema: {
                data: "Data",
                total: "Total"
            placeholder: "@Model.Watermark",
            minLength: 3,
            filter: "contains",
            dataSource: dataSource

     As the result Query string that is send to server always looks like this : ?sort=&group=&filter= and because of that mapping to DataSourceRequest on serverside always results with empty filters

    You should set the autocomplete dataTextField option in order for the widget to filter the dataSource.
