Developing for Splunk Enterprise

Regular expression in restmap.conf

So I'd like to have one custom rest handler that allows for URLs like

  • /myapp/files
  • /myapp/files/0

restmap.conf

[script:myapp_files]
match=/myapp/files*
python.version=python3
handler=myapp_files.req
methods=GET,POST,PUT,DELETE
script = myapp_files.py
scripttype = persist
 
web.conf
 
[expose:myapp_files]
pattern=myapp/files*
methods=GET,POST,PUT,DELETE
 
https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/8.1.0/Admin/Restmapconf#restmap.conf.example doesn't appear to say anything about "match" being a regular expression.

I would presume that if the docs don't say a regex is allowed then a regex is not allowed.

There are examples, however, of pattern use in the OOTB restmap.conf files.  See splunk_instrumentation/default/restmap.conf for an example.  In your case adding a slash may help.

match=/myapp/files/*

If it works then submit feedback on that documentation page to ask them to say patterns are allowed.
