This optional field can be used to create a regular expression to define Directories and/or Content Pages to be included or excluded from a Site Audit crawl. For example, a Regular Expression such as '^business/(products|services)/' will cause the crawler to only follow URLs which start with business and are followed by either '/products/' or '/services/'.
Note: This setting cannot be used together with the Include and Exclude Filters.
Please contact email@example.com or visit the Knowledge Center if you need help with regular expressions.
