Steps to reproduce the bug
Don't mention globbing, and/or explain why
Pull requests welcome!
They do work with globing (>.>) ... When I was working with the API, I found it strange that the ZeroMQ endpoint treated it differently (as if it couldn't glob), however it worked with globs.. So I treated it the same as any other task action in the GraphQL setup:
Sorry, yes - globbing on insert works with task name, but not cycle point. That makes sense because a task name glob can be matched against "known stuff" - the list of all task names in the suite.
Globbing on cycle point (for insert) doesn't work - we'd have to generate all possible cycle points for matching tasks, and then match against those (possible, but not very easy, and not really in the spirit of "matching existing stuff against a pattern").
