Help wirh Regular expression Extractor

Hello everyone,

I have this example messages:

  • (3)www(10)easycoloso(3)com(0)*
  • (6)cmgrau(3)com(0)*
  • (12)settings-win(4)data(9)microsoft(3)com(0)*
  • (3)ens(4)rest(3)gti(6)mcafee(3)com(0)*

And I need a result like:

So I need to delete the first and last () with numbers inside but replace the () in the middle by dots. Any help?

Thanks in advance

Thank you Andrew,

It is something like this 2 steps:

^([0-9])|([0-9])$ -------------> To remove the first and last ()
([0-9]*) --------------> To replace the () in the middle with dots

I don’t know if I can do this in one extractor.
