Regex Searching

DataTables has the ability to perform search using regular expressions.

Regex search only works and tested on the following Laravel DB drivers: MySQL, SQLite and Oracle.

To enable regex, you need to explicitly set it on your javascript:

processing: true,
serverSide: true,
ajax: '',
columns: [
{data: 'id', name: 'id'},
{data: 'name', name: 'name'},
{data: 'email', name: 'email'},
{data: 'created_at', name: 'created_at'},
{data: 'updated_at', name: 'updated_at'}
search: {
"regex": true
