Hello Team!

Your docs here says docs reference that " The resulting uid must match the following regular expression pattern: /^[A-Za-z0-9-_.~]*$"

The problem with this we are unable to create an Arabic based slug.


You can check Wordpress for generating such automatic permalink out of any language and not based on transformation or mapping as slugify is doing.

The question is, can I change the “must” condition here and change the Regex should the resulting match?

+1 cannot create an arabic slug due to this regex.

Same issue here.
Strapi lacks a lot of support for Arabic.

Is this something that can be looked into? Having this functionality would help us a lot
