Ability to turn on / off the greedy feature in Rule based annotator

The rule matches the longest set of tokens from beginning of a sentence ("greedy" way). However, there may be scenarios where I want to match the 1st occurrence of the entity from beginning of a sentence. Please see this forum discussion explaining the scenario in detail: https://w3-connections.ibm.com/forums/html/topic?id=24ef641e-b296-4a69-a3dc-588308208eca&ps=25
