On page https://documentation.meraki.com/MX/Firewall_and_Traffic_Shaping/MX_Firewall_Settings#FQDN_Support we learned how FQDN Support works. This feature allows a wildcard character * (= asterisk) in the Destination column which is quite handy for "big" domains like microsoft or windows.
But that page does not explain how the pattern matching works exactly.
Given one of the following possible strings in Destination column:
my question would be how the following hostnames (extracted from typical URLs) would match:
I'd hate to test all of these one by one. My favourite would be someone from Meraki to add it to the documentation page.
Good question. Seems like docs about that are indeed lacking. Perhaps @CameronMoody can add some information about that feature to the docs.
Ugh, perhaps you're right. I would have hoped this was consistent across features.
@AndreasE Have you tried asking support?. While community members try to be as helpful as we can we don't have all the answers and support can probably get you an answer pretty quick.
did you mean "Make a Wish" (on that configuration page) or opening a case (what Customer and what kind of bug/support)?
Regrettably, you cannot "Make a Wish" on the documentation pages -- even if they deserve it many times from my past experience!
you can use the wildcard "*" (asterisk) in the "Outbound rules", but you cannot use it in the "Cellular Failover rules".
That's maybe the reason for confusion.
You should either re-open the case (if it's been closed) or insist on a sufficient answer.
