I am trying to create a Universal Device Poller for node details and ran into an issue polling for software image. I am polling OID 188.8.131.52.184.108.40.206.220.127.116.11.2.2 and it returns a value of "CW_IMAGE$C3750E-UNIVERSALK9-M$" Since, I am only interested in whats between the dollar signs, regex is perfect for this.
After polling this value, I click on "add calculated value" and use the following line
After trying to test, it wont even show me the output/input of the value. Once I remove the slash, it shows nothing for the output (I assume this is because $ is being matched as end of line). Any other expressions not involving escaped characters work just fine. I thought perhaps maybe I am not escaping it correctly until I tried using the Replace function. It works just fine to replace $ with @ in my test
So I came up with this which words correctly (even removes the dollar signs).
I am hoping I am just not escaping this correctly, but I can not find anything in the documentation advising on to do it correctly in this part of Solarwinds. Perhaps there is a better method all together ?
