- And run the new created job.
- You have succesfully appended a regular expression in your Analytics Bundle job profile configuration !
Note: If you already have performed a Regular Expression job, the “RegExpEntityState” is already set on 1.
Therefore no new regular expression job will add any new Field information to the Index.
The RegExpEntityState settins takes care of skipping a file for that specific Field.
You have to reset the “RegExpEntityState” value in order to proceed processing another job with a new/modified Regular Expression.
