Module: JSS::Matchable

Included in:
Computer, MobileDevice
Defined in:
lib/jss/api_object/matchable.rb,
lib/jss.rb

Overview

Simple match-based searches in the JSS.

The API offers a simple match-based search for some objects, analagous to the search field at the top of the Computers, MobileDevices, and Users sections of the JSS WebApp.

When a class extends itself with this module, it will acquire the .match Class Method which performs a match and returns an Array of matching items.

This module should be mixed in with #extend, not #include

Instance Method Details

#match(term, api: JSS.api) ⇒ Array<Hash>

Perform a match, returning an Array of Hashes, one for each item matched

At the moment, it appears the search is an “exact match” search regardless of the prefs of the user connected to the API.
