Is it possible to use a variable in a regex?

#1 Lala10040 (Last updated )

Hello all,  

In the below code, “CID.*” is the regex that im using but in order to make the code generic I need to use a variable instead of regex, kindly let me know the fix for it or a way to go arround it . 

Main issue: I need to run “supressed” function for every different log separately such that one log of every type is suppressed.


<Processor dup_drop>
  Module    pm_evcorr
    Condition       $raw_event =~ /CID.*/
    Interval        90
    Exec            $MSG = $raw_event;
