Compression Plugin allow for wild cards when identifying files for archive

It seems as of now you need to specifically identify each file you want to add to an archive when using the File Compression Plugin with Workload Schedulers.

 We have many cases where the file has the date appended to the name, which will change daily, and ideally you would be able to identify the file criteria using a wildcard so the job will just archive all files in a directory without needing to know the individual name of the file. I feel liking using wildcards when archiving files is common, and would be extremely beneficial to using this plugin.
