Looking for a way to support regular expressions with File Watcher Jobs
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
A typical File Watcher Job might be:
insert_job: TEST_FW1 job_type: FW

Note: This information applies to both UNIX and Windows agent installations.
