[Pdns-users] Using pipe-regex to filter on query type

Hi There,

The documentation says that an A record query for www.powerdns.com will be
represented as "www.powerdns.com;A" to the pipe-regex checker. However, if I
write a rule like:


With the intent of sending only A records to the pipe-backend, it doesn't
work. I'm guessing what is happening, is that the pipe-regex is actually
checking against "www.pwerdns.com;ANY" which is usually the first query sent
to the backend. Can anyone confirm this?

If so, it would be nice to change the documentation in a way that reflects
this limitation. I.e. explaining that there isn't really a way to match on
record type.
