Exclude UUID from URL

I keep the user identification (UUID) as part of my URL

Due to GDPR reasons I want to exclude the UUID (id from the user) from tracking.

Therefore I set the Global list of Query URL parameters to exclude to:


I also tried:


Tracker code:
_paq.push(["setExcludedQueryParams", ["[0-9a-fA-F]{8}-[0-9a-fA-F]{4}-[0-9a-fA-F]{4}-[0-9a-fA-F]{4}-[0-9a-fA-F]{12}"]]);

But the problem remains. In Matomo the UUID is still shown as part of the URL

Why does the RegEx not work and filter out the UUID from the page URL?

If possible I would also like to avoid custom URL setups for each page as this would increase the complexity tremendously.
