Text Parse Action

This operation will trigger when the user types a generic text matching a given regular expression. This operation is global and always active in any part of the behaviour.


The action uses the following settings:



Control Expression

A valid regular expression that will parse the incoming text or a simple text

Target Variable

The variable that will hold the user text that triggered the action.

React to Page Comments

Enable or Disable real-time Facebook post integration.

Specific Post Id

Contains the full Facebook post id to be watched. If left empty, the trigger will fire for any post on your page.


Text detection can happen in two different ways: using simple text or using a Regular Expression.

  • Simple text The text you enter in Control Expression is directly matched with the user input. For example entering this is awesome will match any sentence containing that exact text. You can use a pipe (|) symbol to match multiple sentences. So to match this is awesome and this is great, you can enter this is awesome|this is great in Control Expression.

  • Regular Expression Xenioo supports standard Regular Expression notation. The input text will be matched against the regular expression specified in Control Expression.

Regardless or the selected method, text detection is always case insensitive.


Expression Match. This action will trigger any child operation as soon as the user input is matching the specified Control Expression.


This action does not produce any variable but the one specified in the Target Variable setting.
