Can I use RegEx to search the Real-Time Content?

I am trying to test a Goal that uses RegEx, using the Real-time view of Content.

 

However, it seems that RegEx doesn't work there, making it hard to test.

 

Is that correct, RegEx doesn't work in that search?

Hi, MrAnalogy,

I just tried this myself and no, it does not seem to accept regex, just exact searches.
