Template Variable exclude regex question

Hello dear community,

perhaps someone may help. I’ve got a gnocchi data source and lots of tempest.* in the result set of my templating variable.

Thetempest-FloatingIPsAssociationTestJSON-server-1470826024[777fb026-89d1-4224-87a8-05360b679329]

example data:

tempest-TestSnapshotPattern-server-xx[dd-dfa-dfa-b877-xx]
testtest[8041d1b0-7de5-4909-8eea-xx]
ubuntutest[d27f2caa-0831-4447-9e53-xx]
burn[11e24b5c-381e-44bb-94ec-xx]
anothertest[cb08a073-8996-4516-9351-xx]

the goal is, to just get rid of all tempest* entries in the result set.

I expected this regex to be working, but its not:

/(?:tempest).*/

any hints?

thanks a lot

Nicolas

How about this - filters out strings starting with tempest:

/^(?!tempest).*/
