hey @chitreshkumar

try this run anywhere search

| makeresults | eval sequence="EH12839911" | append [| makeresults | eval sequence="EH12831421"] |  append [| makeresults | eval sequence="3512839911"] |eval status=if(match(sequence,"^[A-Za-z]{2}[0-9]{8}"),"Valid","Invalid")

Ideally in your environment you should write

<your_base_search> | eval status=if(match(sequence,"^[A-Za-z]{2}[0-9]{8}"),"Valid","Invalid")

Let me know if this works!
