Using regex with event listener path

Avatar

Level 5

Can you use regex for the path which custom event listener listens to?

I'm trying to listen to a folder named 'video' which is a subfolder of a folder which has other siblings (siblings have subfolder called 'video' as well).

I don't want my onEvent function to occur on other folders but just that video folder.

Essentially like this: /content/dam/parentfolder/subfolder/video

I want to do this : /content/dam/parentfolder/.*/video

Is this possible?

Looking at the Javadoc for the ObservationManager manager

Parameters:
listener - an EventListener object.
eventTypes - A combination of one or more event type constants encoded as a bitmask.
absPath - an absolute path.
isDeep - a boolean.
uuid - array of UUIDs.
nodeTypeName - array of node type names.
noLocal - a boolean.

 

Looks like you need to specify an absolute path. 

Hope this helps!

smacdonald2008​, As per the API of observation manager, we can't use regular expression as path while adding the event using Event Listener.

Is there any other way of adding regular expression path except event handler(we can use regular expression path).

Use case : I want to trigger event for all locale and countries  /content/google/en/us/home ->  /content/google/*/*/home
