Given some UPI IDs, the task is to check if they are valid or not using regular expressions. Rules for the valid UPI ID: 

  • UPI ID is an alphanumeric String i.e., formed using digits(0-9), alphabets (A-Z and a-z), and other special characters.
  • It must contain ‘@’.
  • It should not contain whitespace.
  • It may or may not contain a dot (.) or hyphen (-).

UPI stands for Unified Payments Interface (UPI).UPI IDs are unique IDs given to each customer.

Examples :

Input: str = ”9136812895@ybl″
Output: True

Input: str = ”MH05DL9023 ”
Output: false
Explanation: It does not contain the “@” symbol.

Input: str = ”ViratKohli101@paytm″
Output: true

Input: str =”rahul.12chauhan1998-1@okicici″
Output: true

Input: str = ”1234567890@upi123456″
Output: true

Input: str = ”Akanksha  @ybl ”
Output: false
Explanation: It contains a whitespace.

Approach: The problem can be solved based on the following idea:

Create a regex pattern to validate the number as written below:   
regex=”^[a-zA-Z0-9.-]{2, 256}@[a-zA-Z][a-zA-Z]{2, 64}$”

^ : Beginning of the string.
[] Character set :Match any character  in the set.
[a-zA-Z0-9.-] : Match any character in the range a-z, A-Z, 0-9, hyphen(-), dot(.).
{2, 256} Quantifier: Match between 2 and 256 of the preceding items.
$: End of the string

Follow the below steps to implement the idea:

  • Create regex expression for UPI ID.
  • Use Pattern class to compile the regex formed.
  •  Use the matcher function to check whether the UPI id is valid or not.
  • If it is valid, return true. Otherwise, return false.

Below is the implementation of the above approach.

C++




// C++ program to validate the
// UPI ID using Regular
// Expression
 
#include <bits/stdc++.h>
#include <regex>
using namespace std;
 
// Function to validate the
// upi_Id Code
string isValidUpi(string upi_Id)
{
    // Regex to check valid upi_Id Code
    const regex pattern(
        "^[a-zA-Z0-9.-]{2, 256}@[a-zA-Z][a-zA-Z]{2, 64}$");
 
    // If the upi_Id Code
    // is empty return false
    if (upi_Id.empty()) {
        return "false";
    }
 
    // Return true if the upi_Id Code
    // matched the ReGex
    if (regex_match(upi_Id, pattern)) {
        return "true";
    }
    else {
        return "false";
    }
}
 
// Driver Code
int main()
{
    // Test Case 1:
    string str1 = "9136812895@ybl";
    cout << isValidUpi(str1) << endl;
 
    // Test Case 2:
    string str2 = "rahul.12chauhan1998-1@okicici";
    cout << isValidUpi(str2) << endl;
 
    // Test Case 3:
    string str3 = "BNZAA2318JM";
    cout << isValidUpi(str3) << endl;
 
    // Test Case 4:
    string str4 = "934517865";
    cout << isValidUpi(str4) << endl;
 
    // Test Case 5:
    string str5 = "ViratKohli101@paytm";
    cout << isValidUpi(str5) << endl;
 
    // Test Case 6:
    string str6 = "Akanksha  @ybl";
    cout << isValidUpi(str6) << endl;
 
    return 0;
}

    }

    public static void main(String args[])
    {
 
        // Test Case 1:
        String str1 = "9136812895@ybl";
