By snmp trap sensor, may I intercept OID that doesn't match exactly?



I want to genearte alarm (warning, change trigger, ecc..) by a SNMP trap like "LINKDOWN" or "LINKUP" or HSRP change.. In the trap's message, these events have OID ending with variable parts (e.g.: ifindex of interface gone down). Configuring SNMP trap Sensor, the "OID value" field match only exacly OID and doesn't recognize jolly character or root-left part of OID. There are unknown jolly characters? Is it a bug?

Thanks in advance!
