Wildcard Characters in Event and Command Parameters

The wildcard characters * (matching zero or more characters) and ? (matching exactly one character) can be used within communications event, or command parameter values of character type.

Use the wildcard characters to perform pattern matching on communications event data field values or on Siebel Database field values. Such matching can help determine which event or command is to be invoked.

You can use (? *) to match field values when the corresponding field value must not be empty. Separately, ? matches exactly one character, while * matches zero or more characters. The combination of these wildcard characters matches one or more characters.

NOTE:  The characters * and ? do not function as wildcards for event or command parameters that pass parameters to a Siebel business service, a Siebel SmartScript, or a Siebel VB or Siebel eScript script.
