    I am trying out the Linux version using the CLI (and GUI to some extent) and so far everything seems decent, except for filtering.

    I see in the how-to guide for Linux it mentions using -f and -ef to include files/folders or exclude files/folders. However, none of the examples use any sort of pattern matching. Is it possible at all or is this not a feature of Linux backup? Can I only supply a full folder path to include or a full file path/folder to exclude?

    I'm looking for things like

    exclude *.jpg
    include partialnameorfolder*

    standard posix wildcard matching against files/folders, or regex matching, anything really.

    Hello , please check out my screenshots below, the wildcard seems to work perfectly for files - folder exclusions by filters will be supported in future.

    Setting up a backup filter in GUI - back up anything that contains [trans] as a part of file name.

    Same screenshot from the WebUI.

    The folder selected for backup contains 2 files that match the filter.

    Backup storage after the plan ran successfully.

    It also works in CLI for addBackupPlan (editBackupPlan should allow it too, but apparently there's a bug). Related CLI guide

    Thanksm. The CLI guide on cloudberry website I was using didn't list the file type parameters in docs, but the guide you provided is better and has them.
