How do you search for a specific string?

New Member


Is there any way to search for a number which contains exactly 13 characters and starts with either 1 or 2 ?

Another question: say i have a list of names. Can i search a document to see if there are any names from the previous link present in document?

Thank you

The first question can be solved with regex. For example, the search looks for a 1 or 2 followed by 12 digits.

index=foo | regex "[12]\d{12}" | ...

The second question is unclear. Could you add some detail?
