Issue/Introduction

Columbia changed their phone number plan in late 2021.
The Columbian Cell Phone Number data identifier does not have the required patterns to detect the new numbers.

The data identifier can detect the new number if the number is one ten-digit string.
But the data identifier cannot detect the new number if the number has spaces, commas, periods, or other separators in the number.

The new cell phone number are ten digits, xxx xxx xxxx.
The patterns in the data identifier only detect a continuous ten-digit string.
The patterns do not detect the number if there are any separators in the string, i.e. spaces, commas, periods, etc.

Environment

Release: 15.7 and 15.8

Resolution

This has been referred to our Developers to update the data identifier.

Until then, a workaround is to clone the existing Columbian Cell Phone Number data identifier and modify the patterns.
The current patterns are:

\d{8}
\d{2}.\d{3}.\d{3}
\d{2} \d{3} \d{3}
\d{2}/\d{3}/\d{3}
\d{2}-\d{3}-\d{3}
\d{2},\d{3},\d{3}
\d{9}
\d{3} \d{3} \d{3}
\d{3}-\d{3}-\d{3}
\d{3},\d{3},\d{3}
\d{3}/\d{3}/\d{3}
\d{3}.\d{3}.\d{3}
\d{10}
\d{1}/\d{3}/\d{3}/\d{3}
\d{1},\d{3},\d{3},\d{3}
\d{1}.\d{3}.\d{3}.\d{3}
\d{1}-\d{3}-\d{3}-\d{3}
\d{1} \d{3} \d{3} \d{3}

Add the following block to the end of the patterns in the cloned data identifier:

\d{3} \d{3} \d{4}
\d{3}-\d{3}-\d{4}
\d{3},\d{3},\d{4}
\d{3}/\d{3}/\d{4}
\d{3}.\d{3}.\d{4}
