Symptoms

The use of regex or glob patterns in certain MCP configuration objects leads to inconsistent parsing across MCP and TMM. For glob patterns, for example, the TMM produces an error indicating that the regex is invalid, while entries such as *.js are correctly treated as globs.

Impact

Cacheable objects are improperly cached or are not cached, or objects are deflated or are not deflated in opposition to the customer's intent.

Conditions

MCP configuration objects supporting regex and glob inclusion/exclusion patterns lead to inconsistent parsing across MCP/TMM.

Workaround

None.

Fix Information

The parsing of regex and glob patterns has been improved for consistent behavior across MCP and TMM.
