I think your question is not of string formatting, rather of string parsing, meaning identifying parts of string according to a given format.
I your case, you want a function that able to extract a substring that:
* starts with "test"
* ends with "/"
You can do this step by step using simple string method 'find', and slicing:
* find the (position of the) first occurrence of "test"
* find the (position of the) first occurrence of "/", after "test"'s position
* extract the slice defined by these positions
