I'm trying to setup a Goal URL with REGEX matching but it's not working.

The Url I'm trying to match is:


with "12345" being the userid that changes.


Should work, but doesn't. When I do an advanced search for pages with RegEx match (in the new GA interface) it shows no results. If I search for "contains" /edit?registration=1 it shows all the Urls.

What am I missing?

Try escaping the question mark, like so:


As with regex's the question mark makes the preceding character optional, so you'd be matching:

  • user/12345/ediregistration=1
  • user/12345/editregistration=1

Test it on the advanced search (report filter) first, in case there's something else I've missed.
