Regex check in JIRA validation script

I'm trying to check a custom field for a URL string (any URL).  I think I have the regex correct, but I haven't been able to get the syntax right.  

 

RegEx = ^(http:\\/\\/www\\.|https:\\/\\/www\\.|http:\\/\\/|https:\\/\\/)?[a-z0-9]+([\\-\\.]{1}[a-z0-9]+)*\\.[a-z]{2,5}(:[0-9]{1,5})?(\\/.*)?$ 

 

Anyone have a snippet that does something similar?

Hey Scott!

I'd like to help you out here, but I'm not quite sure I understand what the issue is. This is probably a stupid question, but what do you mean when you say "I haven't been able to get the syntax right?" You don't think your Regex syntax is right?

Thanks!

Aidan
