      Description

      Intro

      Current matching operators "like" and "not like" are very confusing because it is not clear how they work judging by name. Another problem is that we have two operators doing similar matching, i.e. "=" and "Equal". We should make it consistent and avoid confusion.

      Acceptance criteria

      1. Existing operators "like" and "not like" must be renamed to "contains" and "does not contain"
      2. Existing operators "=" and "<>" must be renamed to "equal" and "not equal"
      3. Placeholders must be used for the following conditions:
        1. matches/does not match: regular expression
      4. It affects the following places in the front-end:
        1. Action conditions
        2. LLD filtering
        3. Event correlation
        4. Filters
