how did you add the 'wildcard path' ? can you add it via the gui, by browsing servers?
i've seen some odd behaviour w/ * depending where it is in the object.
I added the wildcard path in the gui in the Compliance Rule Editor.
I'm not really clear on the syntax of the wildcard path in the rule editor. It looks like whitespace need to be replaced with dashes, '-' and '' is a wildcard character that needs to be escaped to be treated as a literal. I've also seen a double star, '*', in some rules and I don't know what this is supposed to mean.
from the docs:
Wild Card Explanation
Match multiple characters. This pattern does not match a path
separator character, such as /. Consequently, a path using this
wild card does not recurse through lower directories.
Match multiple characters, including path separator characters.
Using this wild card allows a path to recurse through lower
? Match any single character
so the * should match everything in the config file or extended object at the same level, and the ** should match everything recursively - eg your extended object looks like:
i've run into some questions around this matching as well and am trying to get clarification.
