regex for Apps

Path Finder

I'm looking for the regex for extracted fields in a custom built app. I cannot find them in any props.conf and transforms.conf. Are they stored in different location for Apps?

Depending on how the app is built they could also be stored as rex statements inside saved searches used by the app. If you wrote the app, you would probably know that already 🙂

No, they go in props.conf / transforms.conf in either the app's default or local directory.
