Folder sensor



Does the folder sensor support GLOB or REGEX pattern matching ? I need to monitor a folder for number of files, but it should disregard files with specific filename pattern.

the sensor does not support wildcards or other pattern matching expressions. You could adapt a script though to create a custom sensor.
