    Hi all,

    I have a delimited files connection type in my masking environment. How can I use a file pattern to include a group of files without using known filename in advance? All files in my folder have filename that contains a date. Thus these filenames can change dinamically.

    Thank you.
    Gianpiero

    Hi,
    When defining the rule set after you selected the connector you'll see a list of all files in that directory. Instead of selecting any of those files you can add a file name pattern instead. This pattern follows the rules of regular expressions(!), not the typical wildcards of the O/S. Example: .*.csv would retrieve all delimited files with extension ".csv".
    Cheers,
    Karsten

    You saved me! Thank you a lot. I used *.csv instead and I wasn't able to mask any file. Using .*.csv saves me!
