Regular Expressions / Wildcards

All of the patterns entered to match the various address fields are evaluated as case-insensitive regular expressions by default.


Address Alerts use POSIX Regular Expressions included in the PostgreSQL database engine. See the PostgreSQL documentation for full details.

If you want to do a case-sensitive match you need to prepend the pattern with "(?c)"

The simplest regular expression that acts as a wildcard is ".*", that matches any type of character zero or more times.
