    Default ignoring fixed length of random numbers

    Hi,

    I am trying to compare files that have a unique idenfitier I am trying to ignore. The identifier always starts with '_' and is always 13 numeric characters long. For example:

    <properties xmi:id="Property_1252110138713" name="requestTimeout" value="600"/>
    <connectors xmi:type="adminservice:RMIConnector" xmi:id="RMIConnector_1429190209647" enable="true"/>

    Can anyone advise on how to ignore these values?

    Thanks,

    Fearo

    Hello,

    You can define a Regular Expression as a Basic Grammar type to match on this pattern (_\d{13}) then define this grammar as Unimportant in the Text Compare's Session Settings. We have a detailed KB article and video here:
