Use RegEx to restrict data in Custom label field

I have created a custom Label field. If I want to restrict users to be able to add data that matches certain pattern, is that possible without going to any plugin?

e.g. Strings matching the pattern ABC-\d\d\d or DEF-\d\d\d\d\d\d should only be allowed in the custom label field.

I am using premium cloud version.

Hello @Vishal Biyani 

You can't restrict label field out of the box. A label field is made to allow users to put whatever data they want/need. You can try to use a customfield with restricted option instead.


Hope this helps

@Moh - i have created a custom field of type Label. Any suggestions how to restrict data in this field using RegEx?

No, as that defeats the purpose of the label field.  Use a multi-select custom field instead, then you can completely control what people put in.
