Application ID for MS-Edge

Due to the constraints placed on us by management, we don't support Chrome, and early on, I created a custom app ID specifically for Chrome and was able to block it fairly effectively.  Then MS released Edge, which fouled everything up.  So all of the chrome blocks had to be changed allows, so edge would work.  So, like an idiot, I thought I could simply follow the same process, by creating an edge specific custom app ID and went through the entire process, only to be told that my match criteria is invalid.  Tried a couple of different ways, to be honest, but either the pattern was too short, as it requires a minimum of 7 characters (seriously?), which sucks for edg/whatever version #, or it complains about an invalid pattern, when I include Edg/88., which meets the bare minimum 7 character limit.  It also complains when I insert the entire string for Edge (Edg/88.0.705.63).  I really need to find a solution for this.  Has anybody else run into a situation like this?

Hi,

 

If you are using a text string you need to escape the "." because it's a regex token.  For example:

 

Edg/88\.0\.705\.63

First and foremost, thank you for the response!!

 

So you're using the \ to make the period digestible?

Hi,

 

That is correct..if you want to perform an exact match on the period character and do not "escape" the period then the system will interpret it as the regex token "." which means "match any character".
