Load files with *.vdx extension

Hi all,

Need some help here.

How to load all of the visio (*.vdx) files from a component?
1. The component contains many folders;
2. The visio files can be under multiple subfolders

For example,
National (A component)
   - Folder1
       - Folder1.1
                - File.txt
       - Folder1.2
               - 1A.vdx
               - 1B.doc
  - Folder2
      - 2A.vdx
      - 2B.doc
      - 2C.pdf

I would like to have this result in my sandbox, i.e. only vdx extension.
   - Folder1
       - Folder1.2
               - 1A.vdx
  - Folder2
      - 2A.vdx

With this loadrule, I could load the 1A.vdx on the Folder1/Folder1.2.
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<scm:sourceControlLoadRule xmlns:scm="" version="1">
        <component name="National"/>
        <parentFolder repositoryPath="/Folder1/Folder1.2"/>
            <filter pattern="*.vdx"/>
        <sandboxRelativePath includeComponentName="true" includeRepositoryPath="true"/>

Since I wanted to load every vdx within a component, I changed the parentFolder.repositoryPath to "/", i.e. <parentFolder repositoryPath="/"/>. After the change, there is nothing loaded.

Would you please educate me how to load a specific type of file (*.vdx) from a component with includeRepositoryPath?

Best regards,

Sorry for those garbage confusing characters in the loadrule parentfolder. Here is the clear version ;)

<parentfolder repositoryPath="/Folder1/Folder1.2"/> loaded a vdx file
<parentfolder repositoryPath="/"/> loaded nothing

Hello James,

this is unsupported at this time, there is a prior similar post on this functionality here

Please feel free to subscribe yourself to Load rules (44004) or As a user I want to selectively filter the load to only include files matching a particular naming pattern (173153).

Thanks Sonia. It is a bad news.
