Wildcard filters on rules aren't really wildcards?


This one is definitely user error. I’m not sure I follow what is going on, I’ve read some of the messages about it. So far the most I can infer is that the wildcard filter option in rules is not really a wildcard in that it neither supports actual wildcards, no * globs for instance, nor does it support regex filtering, which would be great if it did.

So how are you supposed to use the so-called wildcard option in rules?


Wildcards are now supported in versions 8.2.x:

Thanks Gary. I saw that, but based on what I thought I read it did not honor the expected *. Or does that recognize/use the basic * globbing? If so, does it use ? to match a single character?
