Regex entity not recognized if pattern exists in another

Posted on by 152


I created 2 regex entities and tried using them in the same topic but none of them are recognized if pattern exists in the trigger phrase and the question node is not skipped.


After some testing, I realized that the first regex entity pattern was part of the second entity pattern. If removing the duplicate part from one of the entities, the recognition works as expected. My first thought is that both entities should be filled even if they contain the same pattern. Does anyone know if this is by design?

    Can you share the YAML for your topic and the regex expressions?
