Domain whitelist appears to be case sensitive, is it?

Domain whitelist appears to be case sensitive, is it?

I created a domain whitelist called wlDomains, a node based on stdlib.listDomainGeneric and added the whitelist to my domain aggregator.  I then added the indicator "" (lowercase, without the quotes).


When I checked the feed for the output node though, it still listed "AOL.COM".  I had to add an all uppercase entry to wlDomains in order for AOL.COM to be removed.


Is this expected?

Hi @MichaelPDean,

you are right, this should be improved. But the best place is improving the aggregator to support case insensitive matches. I have created and ER to track this:



L2 Linker

Coming back to this, I see the option was closed back in Sep, 2017, but I find that the DNS white list is still case sensitive (I white listed, the domain feed has AOL.COM, still in the feed as a suspicious domain).


Is it going to remain this way?


Thank you.
