Allow to use two wildcards in SFTP Client LIST service

We would like to pick up files from our partners using two wildcards in RemoteFileName field in SFTP Client LIST and SFTP Client GET services.

What is your industry? Financial Markets
How will this idea be used?

Per example, a client remote server that we need to make a GET on every files with a patern in the middle of the file name in a folder that contains a lot of differents patterns name.

Ex: patterneFileName

Currently, since we can only use one wildcard we need to make codelist for each files containing the filepatterns(hundreds)!

    I agree with this, currently we are using Javatask (customized code) to match the file pattern with more than one *.
    Ideally it would be better if the SFTP list and get service support more than one wild card search.
