retrieve metadata from ISBN only??

hi all im having some issues with downloading metadata info and covers for multiple books at at time but one thing im finding never has an issue is when metadata is looked up ONLY using the ISBN.

most have my books i have the ISBN for but other things like title and author etc might be mixed up.

can i configure calibres metadata plugins to ONLY use the ISBN when searching for metadata info?

If you have an ISBN in the book record and the site providing metadata uses ISBN, it will be used. Are you finding that's not true? If there's no ISBN for the book, what do you want to happen?
