Summary:

Looking for a way to support regular expressions with File Watcher Jobs 

Instructions: 

Regular expressions are supported with File Watcher jobs when the System Agent is at least at release R11.3 SP4 INCREMENTAL 1

For example on Linux, patch RO77796 or higher ( LNX-X86 - CA WA AGENT R11.3 SP4 INCREMENTAL 1 ) has to be installed

To activate this feature, new agentparm.txt setting (filemon.filename.r7regex=true) has been added to support regular expression characters.

Then you have to stop and restart the System Agent

Additional Information:

A typical File Watcher Job might be:
