REGEXP_MATCH

Returns true if the target value exactly matches the regular expression pattern.

Sample usage

REGEXP_MATCH(name, '[a-zA-Z].*')

Syntax

REGEXP_MATCH(X, regular_expression)

Parameters

  • X - a field or expression to evaluate.
  • regular_expression - a regular expression.

Returns

The REGEXP_MATCH function returns Boolean data type values.

Notes

Looker Studio uses the RE2 expression syntax. For more details, see Regular Expressions in Looker Studio.

Note that patterns containing escape characters such as \ may require additional escaping in Looker Studio, which can be avoided with the use of raw string literals.
