Add regex to Comparison Operators for Segments

jaadavis 22-08-2018

For segments that have multiple criteria against a single dimension, it would be much faster to be able to use a regex operator like Google Analytics instead of having to set the conditions one by one.

I created a segment in Adobe Analytics that has almost 30 different criteria that define it - all using the “page” dimension - connected with OR logic.

In Google Analytics it would be easy to create this segment using regex, but in Adobe Analytics it took me quite a bit of time, having to drop in and set one criteria at a time.

I think this would be a very valuable operator to add to operators currently supported in segments.

Hi, thanks for the suggestion! We actually did an internal POC for this, but it turns out that regex engines were too slow for us to return reports in a timely manner. We'll keep looking at it though, thanks for posting!
