We would like to include a regex or some sort of wild card to allow these.  The URL always seems to include:

 When we allow URLs, we add the URLs to a URL list, which is tied to category.  I see we can use regex, but I am not certain if the URL needs the hostname???  I am also not sure how the regex would look.  I opened a case with support, but they referenced me to regex101 website, but that was really it, so hoping the Netskope community might be able to assist.
