Currently Magneto2 default not provide the textarea as filter type.

You can check this directory so you get idea how many type of filter is currently available into the magento ui grid.


According to my suggestion, you are use text field as filter instead of textarea, because they are allows you to add those data and filter it.


It's not possible to make textarea as a filter type.

In magento, currently text, select, dateRange and textRange types of filters are available only.
