Need Help Combining or Deleting Pages

In my reports, I have pages reported as noted below.   Can anyone suggest, what is the best way to filter my reports to consolidate the pages below? Is filtering the best way to go or should I do something different?

 

/tools/recurring/customer/3710187f78ef1677ee4506/subscriptions/

/tools/recurring/customer/201569631e3c339acabd6f/subscription/260928/cancel/

Sure, you can do it ad hoc - for example, try looking at All Pages, click advanced and filter on
Include > Page > Matching RegExp \/tools\/recurring\/customer\/([A-Za-z0-9]+)\/subscriptions\/

An advanced filter would work - something like (feel free to optimize the regex - you could really tighten it up - but there is not a real performance hit here and I prefer to leave things as obvious as possible).

Filter type > Custom > Advanced
Field A -> Extract A > Request URI >\/tools\/recurring\/customer\/([A-Za-z0-9]+)\/subscriptions\/
Field B -> Extract B > Leave blank
Output To -> Constructor > Request URI >/tools/recurring/customer/subscriptions/

Field A Required and Override Output field both ticked

The second one would be something like:
\/tools\/recurring\/customer\/([A-Za-z0-9]+)\/subscription\/([A-Za-z0-9]+)\/cancel\/ and
/tools/recurring/customer/subscriptions/cancel

Remember, filters aren't retroactive, but you should be able to see this on live view.

Thank you Philip - If I'd prefer not to add a filter at the view level as I'd like to be able to apply the filters as needed and the view level filters are not retroactive... Is this something I would be able to accomplish through creating a segment or filtering at the report level?

/tools/recurring/customer/.*/subscriptions/
should work just fine

and yes you can just type that in the search box above the report table because it supports RegExs by default :-)
