Filter out specific referring URLs with regex

I'm trying to exclude URLs like these:

 

/share4x/index.e18853ff16b30131c857d1a4c3816e85.html
/share4x/index.8b80d8d9046d002f5c79f52c9a27d602.html

I tried a number of reg expressions, including the one below, and they aren't working. 

(\/share4x.+)

Any suggestions?

\/share4x\/index\.[a-z0-9]{32}\.html

i'm presuming there're 32 such characters between index. and .html

 

Otherwise: \/share4x\/index\.[a-z0-9]+.html

which assumes one or more number characters in-between

Use "Campaign referral path" instead of "Referral" when you configure your filter.

And you can use /share4x/ or /share4x/.*html as a regex.

Slash sign "/" doesn't have any special meaning so there is no need to put backslash sign before it.
