When using a Decision shape, and comparing a profile element against a regular expression, in order for the match to yeild a true value, the regular expression must match the entire value of the element, not just a sub string.

The second value in the Decision shape, should be a static string, without quotes.

For example, in your Regular Expression, you may have to put a '.*' before and after the string you are searching for, in order to match the beginning and end of the profile element.

For example, your second value might equal: '.*Search String.*'
