Rules with a pattern match?

Post by jsalch » Fri Feb 15, 2019 5:43 pm

Is it possible to create a rule where the process is pattern matched?

For example, GoToMeeting installs a new version regularly. This happens when joining a new meeting, and G2M has challenges with rules. It would be nice to be able to create a rule for G2M that doesn't require the version number in the process name to match.

G2M installs with the version number in the process name.

I like this idea. However, it would be most useful as a "template". Where you say, "Here's the rules for how apps that match this name should be treated.", and when a new app is seen for the first time that matches the pattern, Little Snitch should provide a pop-up that asks if you're good with applying the template to this new app. It then should create the app definition and signature.
