Support for regex - either in conditions or as an action with capture groups exposed

It would be really good to have support for regular expressions.


This could be surfaced in the UI ideally in both conditions and actions.


A conditional regex would just test whether a string matched against a regex.

An action regex would expose capture groups.

Status: Under Review

This is a great suggestion - we are trying to identify a way to safely run regex in Flow.

Would like to be able to perform regex commands on strings.


Outputs would be 

- array of matches

- count of matches

- array of arrays of groups in matches


if using find/replace regex, also include full string post replacement
