Regex in filter search

Post by Ian Gralinski » Mon Oct 17, 2016 11:16 pm

Would it be possible to allow regex expressions in filters?

This would allow filters to be created for more complex search queries.

Hello Ian,

In fact it's already possible, using the filter operator "like" instead of "equals" or "contains".

Please note that since another user also didn't understand that this "like" operator is actually using regex (see this forum message), we have already renamed this "like" operator to "like (regex)" in LogMX v6.0.0 that should be released in a few weeks :wink: I guess it was not very clear anyways, sorry about that.

Xavier

Thanks for the update Xavier. I should have checked more thoroughly before posting :oops:

No problem. If a feature is not instinctive or needs to read a documentation first, it just means it's not clear enough!
So thank you for your feedback :)
