The example expression below will detect 3 digits, a dash, 2 digits, a dash, and then 4 digits. This is standard format for a United States Social Security Number.


Regular Expression requires

  • Derivative enabled
  • Dertivative extension must be added to the extension list
  • File being reviewed must meet the Derivative file size requirements
If multiple expressions are entered in a single Client Configuration Policy

Expressions are logically OR so any of the expressions will trigger a regex match.
