Use search patterns (regex?) in Troubleshooting/Logs
Idea shared by Sébastien Riccio - 5/22/2021 at 12:54 AM
Hello ST,

Quite often, we need to search the logs for a pattern, something like "user@domain*deleted".

That would match for exemple:

user@domain mailbox: sdfgsdf count: bleh deleted"
user@domain mailbox: gfdgfg count: blih deleted"

But I can't find a way to use some "advanced" search patterns. Is that something available and if not, can it be added.
This really would spare a lot of time (grabbing the logs, opening them with an editor that supports search patterns like this.

It could be also provided by adding support for regex patterns, for example : /user@domain.*deleted/i and a checkbox to enable/disable regex mode.

[ search box ]   [x] use regex

Any thoughts ?
