In the Exclude from * dialogs, you can enter regular expressions to define excluded URLs. While you can escape a single meta-character with a backslash, you can also use the \Q…\E escape sequence. All the characters between the \Q and the \E are interpreted as literal characters. E.g. \Q*\d+*\E matches the literal text *\d+*. This escape sequence is used in ZAP when you exclude URLs via some context menus.
Note: If your URL contains a “\E”, then you have to do the following steps when using the \Q…\E escape sequence:
Example: subdomain.example.com/path?a=\E &moredata=2 should appear as \Qsubdomain.example.com/path?a=\E \\E \Q&moredata=2\E
