I do not think so, but I would double check the documentation, since it also may be version dependent.


In what scenario would this be useful ?


I hope this helps !

Where do you want to use * in the rules? The reason I am asking is that rules conditions can be build using "contains/does not contain" operators which are wild-card like already

fgrushevsky is right.

"Contains" operator can be used to get nearly the same functionality.
And, as there is a simple substring search/comparison, you can not use wildcard in rule condition.

My boss asked me to check, he was working on some rules that he wanted to do a wild card, I will tell him to work with the Contains as an alternative.
