Custom data pattern

L2 Linker

Hi Team 


I have a user who has a requirement to add a custom Data Pattern to identify a specific string 


Example: 1234/09/4578 


(Note the second identifier is a numeric value between [1-9])


I set up the data pattern under " Custom Objects --->Data Pattern ---> Add " in the following format to achieve this  "(/d/d/d/d)/-(/d[1-9])/-(/d/d/d/d)" , but this fails with the following error messge 


test123 -> pattern -> numbers -> regex '(/d/d/d/d)/-(/d[1-9])/-(/d/d/d/d)' is invalid. can't handle two dfas next to each other in pattern '(/d/d/d/d)/-(/d[1-9])/-(/d/d/d/d)'
test123 -> pattern -> numbers -> regex is invalid


But it works without any issues when we put it as  "(/d/d/d/d)/-(/d/d)/-(/d/d/d/d)"


Is this an expected behavior?

Hi Amogh,


I would say this is anticipated behavior.  You can not have two strings less than 7 bytes seperated by a wildcard element.



Hi Claude 


Thanks for the reply, any idea how we can get the pattern working then , any input will be highly appreciated
