Modify search bar to only search on one column

Modify search bar to only search on one column

Possible solutions and why they aren't adequate:
1. Creating my own custom search bar, calling the Datatables api, and then hiding the default search bar that comes with Datatables. It just seems like a lot of unnecessary work as I want to maintain the positioning and styling of the default search bar and just want to change the functionality.
2. Setting "searchable": false for all the columns except the one I want. I have some other custom buttons that do need to be able to filter on other columns, which is why I specifically need to change the search bar functionality to only work for one column.

All I want to be able to do is make is so the default search bar only searches on one column. Any help is appreciated!
