In alternative, a wildcard ip address should be supported in the existing "Assigned IP Address" evidence source.

This is because dhcp server might assign a different ip everytime, but we still want to know when we got connectivity in order to mount network drives.

Are you wanting an evidence source that is active if a given host is accessible?

@aristidesfl

That would also be interesting.
But more importantly, an evidence source which becomes active when any ip is assigned to a given interface.

If you configure the IP evidence source rule correctly, it can match any IP in a range. You just need to set the subnet mask.

Yes, the IP evidence source supports that.

Oh, that's great! I tried to use wildcards via "*" in the first place but it didn't work. Maybe it would be good to mention this feature somewhere in the form for creating the "Assigned IP" rule. :)
