Classification Rule Builder Test does not match Reports

I have an issue with the Classication Rule Builder in which a rule that behaves correctly when tested returns values that are not correct in the report. Specifically, I’m using a the following rule:

  • Rule Type: Regular Expression
  • Matching Condition: ^(([^_|]*)_([^_|]*)_([^_|]*)_([^_|]*)_([^_|]*))\|(([^_|]*)_([^_|]*))\|(([^_|]*))\|(([^_|]*)_([^_|]*)_([^_|]*))\|(([^_|]*)_([^_|]*)_([^_|]*)_([^_|]*))$
  • Set classification: utm_campaign
  • To: $1

When I test this with:

‘mombaby_foc_17m8_care_hp-pn|video_|programmatic|w2045-twincities_demo_awareness|video_v1_birth_|mombaby_foc_17m8_care_hp-pn|video_|programmatic|w2045-twincities_demo_awareness|video_v1_birth_’,

utm_campaign is blank, indicating no match. However in the report, the same tracking code matches utm_campaign with:

‘mombaby_foc_17m8_care_hp-pn|video_|programmatic|w2045-twincities_demo_awareness|video_v1_birth_|mombaby_foc_17m8_care_hp-pn’

What is going on here?
