Cannot Check Match Inside JSON File Sat May 18, 2019 7:26 am • by

I have a rule that checks for a specific JSON file then passes the information to an Applescript - all works fine.

However I would like to be able to match text inside the JSON file, however I cannot seem to match the contents at all.

Is this an issue with Finder/Spotlight not indexing inside JSON files? Or is there some other possible reason?

This is the start of the rule where I would like to check the contents of the file:

Code: Select all
if (all) of the following conditions are met
    (Kind) (is) (JSON Document)
    (Name) (matches) (Project Group)_(Project Name)

Thanks In Advance,

Have you tried using "Contents contain match"?
