#' @description 
#' \code{tcplGetAeid} takes a string(name) and finds the assay component endpoint names that match the string and the 
#' aeids associated with those names.The function performes a regular expression like matching for strings in the 
#' assay component endpoint name column in the assay component endpoint table. 
#' 
#' @param name A string that will be matched to the assay component endpoint name
