Using Wildcards in Metric Definitions, adding regex to get just segments with letters rather than anything?

We have used the wildcard option for metric definitions, however, we have a need to separate segments that start with a letter rather than a number.

 

Is there a way to add regex to data metric name segment interpretation?   (if not, this would make a great feature).

 

e.g. 

We have this metric name, which works well,  

hostname/Custom Metrics/SpecialApp/somename/component/*/metricname

 

However, we want to filter out all the "*" segment values that numbers rather than text string names.

Is it possible to do something like this? 

 

hostname/Custom Metrics/SpecialApp/somename/component/[a-z]*/metricname

 

We actually tried this and it doesn't work. It seems the interpreter fails. Any other ideas?

Hi Walter,

 

Unfortunately, there is not a way to achieve the use case. I feel it's a wonderful enhancement. You can sign in to the community and go to the “Idea Exchange” section to resubmit your feature/enhancement request.
