  • Transformed by substitution expression: enables the Substitution Expression field. This enables you to replace some, or all, of the hostname with custom values.

Substitution Expression

Enables you to substitute your hostnames with custom values. These substitutions can be simple substitutions, or more complex regular expressions. The substitution expression is a name-value pair, with the original value, or regular expression on the left, and the substitution value on the right.

You can include multiple, comma-separated, substitutions.

For example:

^database-server-="", [.]example[.]com$="",dx521="Staging DB"

More complex substitutions are possible by using a regular expression. For more information on the syntax used in these regular expressions, see Regular Expression Constructs.

  • Always (default): endpoint values are always displayed.

  • Never: endpoint values are never displayed.

  • For non-default values: endpoint values are displayed only if they differ from 3306 and /tmp/mysql.sock.
