 +Note, that commas are not allowed in unquoted item [[:​manual/​config/​items/​item/​key#​key_parameters|key parameters]],​ so the parameter containing a macro function has to be quoted. The backslash (''​\''​) character should be used to escape double quotes inside the parameter. Example:
 +  net.if.in["​{{#​IFALIAS}.regsub(\"​(.*)_([0-9]+)\",​ \1)}",​bytes]
