Hi Leonard,

Why don't you use the data entry because if we add the regex option, you won't be able to open the URL embedded.

Olivier,

The data entry behaves differently. An example being that the Display preference being overridden by the client settings while the web browser entry type respects the Display preference.

David,

Thanks! It's a pain to deal with the messy URLs some sites use without it.

Hi Lenard,

The regex option will be available in the web browser session under the new "Browser Extension" tab in the next RDM version.

Hi folks,

So, I've had some time to try this and it seems to only match against the domain and ignores the protocol and path after.

For instance, we have a Web Browser session with a URL of: https://console.aws.amazon.com/console/home
Clicking the login button takes us to a fun URL of: https://www.amazon.com/ap/signin?openid.assoc_handle=aws&openid.return_to=https%3A%2F%2Fsignin.aws.amazon.com%2Foauth%3Fresponse_type%3Dcode%26client_id%3Darn%253Aaws%253Aiam%253A%253A015428540659%253Auser%252Fhomepage%26redirect_uri%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Fconsole.aws.amazon.com%252Fconsole%252Fhome%253Fstate%253DhashArgs%252523%2526isauthcode%253Dtrue%26noAuthCookie%3Dtrue&openid.mode=checkid_setup&openid.ns=http%3A%2F%2Fspecs.openid.net%2Fauth%2F2.0&openid.identity=http%3A%2F%2Fspecs.openid.net%2Fauth%2F2.0%2Fidentifier_select&openid.claimed_id=http%3A%2F%2Fspecs.openid.net%2Fauth%2F2.0%2Fidentifier_select&action=&disableCorpSignUp=&clientContext=&marketPlaceId=&poolName=&authCookies=&pageId=aws.ssop&siteState=registered%2Cen_US&accountStatusPolicy=P1&sso=&openid.pape.preferred_auth_policies=MultifactorPhysical&openid.pape.max_auth_age=120&openid.ns.pape=http%3A%2F%2Fspecs.openid.net%2Fextensions%2Fpape%2F1.0&server=%2Fap%2Fsignin%3Fie%3DUTF8&accountPoolAlias=&forceMobileApp=0&language=en_US&forceMobileLayout=0

So trying to match https://www\.amazon\.com/signin/ap/\?.+ doesn't match, but www\.amazon\.com does

Hi Lenard,

It is designed that it only checks the domain. Would you like a way that checks the entire URL?

Hi,

We will add a way to check the complete URL with regex in our TODO list.
