Did you ever get an answer from support on this ? If it is regex, I haven't found the correct syntax yet.
I have not, but I do have a consultant visiting this next week, so I am going to try and get some answers then.
Has there been any movement on this issue?
I've raised a platinum ticket on the issue and will get back to you.
I got an answer... apparently it is a like statement without the wildcards. That sounds like an "=" to me....
If you do a view sql for a query, it is what it reports. The usage of this escapes me
I did some tests
I created 10 systems epo tree whose name is prova1-10.
I then created a tag "test" that detects systems on the basis of criteria such as name using the filter contains patter and setting it to specific values:
value "ov" the criterion does not match any system
value "%ov%" the criterion does not match any system
value "*ov*" the criterion matches all ten systems prova1-10
value "??ov?1?" the criterion that matches a single system prova10
value "??ov?1*" the cirterion matches two systems prova1 prova10
I tried more complex patterns like this "??ov?[1,2]?" but do not work.
Who knows, McAfee provides a help on this, because there is no trace in the online help of the criterion "contains pattern".
Have you tried searching for prova% ?
Yes I tried but that pattern does not match any system
The two wildcards here are * and ?, which map to the SQL wilcards _ and %:
* is equivalent to % which means "Any string composed of zero or more characters."
? is equivalent to _ which means "Any single character."
