Success URLs are a great way to find out if a participant does or does not get to the expected URL.  It is not a way for a participant to finish a task, as not getting to the "success URL" is equally important information.
The tester is not aware if they have reached the success URL and is told to complete a task when they *think* they are done.

Wildcards:  Let’s say you task is deemed successful if the tester navigates to a particular URL during the task, but it could be more than 1 particular URL. You can use a wildcard character to match any URL.

e.g.

http://mysite.com/shoes/*

Will match anything starting with http://mysite.com/shoes/ and the star at the end means anything after. For example, it will match http://mysite.com/shoes/redshoe and http://mysite.com/shoes/blueshoe

You can place the wildcard character anywhere, not just at the end.

e.g.

http://*.mysite.com/

Will match http://shopping.mysite.com and http://shoes.mysite.com
