#2025 closed enhancement (fixed)

Allow regexp (or wildcard) style queries for XAPI tag lookup

Currently it's nominaly possible to query XAPI directly if you know the specfic tag you want.

Would it be possible to consider allowing the use of regexp so that a queries like

node[name={?}{?}{?)ton Place] (which would match to "name=Repton Place" "name=Manton Place" but not to name="Acton Place" or name="Mansfield Place" or "name=Childs Way") or

node[source={*}Yahoo!{*}] (which would match to "source=Yahoo!","source= NPE;Yahoo!","source=Yahoo!;NPE")

could be obtained via a XAPI.

I appreciate that matching regexps/wildcards might impose a sever load though.

Closing as this relates to the old XAPI which is no longer maintained. The new jxapi can be found at and issues should be reported there.

With jxapi it would be prohibitively expensive to do a regexp server-side.
