  • Filter Wildcards
    Posted: 11-27-2019, 7:51 AM

    Hi Everybody


    I'm trying to filter out Folders starting with a range of numbers.

    Like /1_*; 12_*; 24_*; 987_*; basically starting with an 1 to 3 character long number followed by an underline and variable text after. 

    Would like to use something like "/[1-999]_*/***" but Commvault doesn't support that and I'd like to avoid mutliple RegEx Filters just to implement such a basic Filter.

    Any Idea how I could achieve that? 


    Thanks, Stefan

    Hi Stefan 

    I don't believe you can have multiple filters in a single string. 

    Reference -

    This sounds like a good enhancement and would recommend you to engage support to see if this is feasible or other methods to achieve your need

    depends on what you mean with multiple filters, each '*' is one filter and you can have multiple of those in one line.

    Current workaround is some structure like this:

    Not very elegant if you ask me since it could be a one-liner like:
