We recently upgraded from Grafana v8.1.2 to Grafana v9.4.1.
In version v8, a regex pattern for variables was something like ^(abc-). At least that’s the format we used and it works.
In version v9, the regex pattern is now surrounded by forward slashes. The v8 pattern now becomes /^(abc-)/. It appears the forward slashes are required - as soon as I add them to the regex pattern, I get values. Without the forward slashes I do not get values.
I would have expected on the first start-up of v9, the conversion process would have corrected the regex patterns used in variables. It did not.
Is there a way to mass change the regex patterns in variables for all of our dashboards?
