2.6 Using Regular Expressions

Some dialog boxes in Novell SecureLogin allow you to specify text to identify an application screen. The SecureLogin needs to match option allows you to use regular expressiona as another way to uniquely identify a particular application screen.

Regular expressions are text patterns that are used for string matching. They contain a mix of plain text and special characters to indicate what kind of matching to do.If your regular expression does not match any controls on the particular application screen, Novell SecureLogin prompts you to check your regular expression and ensure the correct control is selected. You might need to skip special characters in your regular expression.

You can specify a regular expression such as:Connecting to server (.*)The (.*) specifies the value that must be captured to define the credentials. You can have one credential set for each regular expression value.
