I need a regular expression that will match on the following conditions:
1. Needs to match any string that contains “Application1 myCompany M117 Corp_LA”
2. Needs to match any string that contains “Application2 myCompany M117 Corp_LA”
3. Needs to match any string that contains “Application3 myCompany M117 Corp_LA”
4. Needs to match any string that starts with an underscore. For example _app1 or _app_2, but NOT app_3

I’ve tried:
(Application1 myCompany M117|Application2 myCompany M117 Corp_LA|Application3 myCompany M117 Corp_LA)|^(_.*)

This seems to work in an online regex tester, but doesn’t work in the actual application.
