Try this way:
var idx = str.indexOf("\\?<useridentifier>=[@ANaccount]");
var str1 = str.substring(idx, str.length - 1);

Open in new window

var str = "www.abc.com?<useridentifier>=[@ANaccount]";

var check=new RegExp ("[\?<useridentifier>=\[@ANaccount\]]");

//this will output position of "?" for testing purposes
if(check.test(str)==true) alert(str.search('\\?'));
