It is standard regex; specifically the “end of line anchor”.

In your example if you used ‘Fan 1’, it could match services ‘Fan 1’, ‘Fan 10’, ‘Fan 123456789’.  By adding the ‘end of line anchor’, it has to end at the ‘1’ character.

Hi there!
When defining a rule in WATO, I can specify a specific host, service.
I see that sometimes there is a sign $, for example:
Service: "Fan 1$".
What does that $ mean?
How can i specify a rule for all Fans (Fan 1, Fan 2, Fan 3, ...)?
I need some kind of wildcard.
