Google Tag Manager

Google Tag Manager – Search box with regex

Working on big implementations of GTM with Analytics and advertising tags, you regularly need to filter on more than one keyword search like a tag name or a folder.

You know what? Tags, triggers & vars search boxes allow the use of regular expressions to combine search on the following list displayed columns:

  • name
  • type
  • folder
  • firing triggers (for tags list)

Let’s see below an example of built-in vars regex filter to get names containing click word & URL-typed vars.
