Introduction to Regular Expressions (RegEx)

In this session, we start with the basics of creating and using Regular Expressions in both the Jamf Pro interface and scripting.

Jamf Pro supports Regular Expressions in Advanced Search and Smart Group Criteria. Some of the more heavily used command line tools (grep, awk, etc.) rely on a regular expression "pattern." Interactive scripts rely on user input for responses. Regular Expressions play a role in device management and being able to understand and use them represents a significant, professional-growth mile stone for device administrators.
