Trying to filter request URI but when I verify the URL is connected to so many pages
I am trying to filter out a confirmation page from being tracked in our Google Analytics account. Went to filters, custom, Request URI, put in the URL (/success) and verified - when I verified it listed so many pages connected to the site that I do not want to filter. How can I filter out just that exact URL???

Have you created another View for testing filters?
You should leave the original View without any filters applied to it. this will ensure you have a full unedited
copy of data should it be needed at any stage.
Then create another View - called a Master View.. this is used for general reporting.
And then another View called Test View or similar.
This would be the recommended thing to do, that way you can setup a filter
in the Test View, let it run for a couple of days to see the results
and then delete it or remove it and apply it to the Master View
Try the following in the filter field /success$
