Multiple bundle identifiers or file paths

Multiple entries in bundle_identifiers and file_paths are joined by “or”.

The following condition is matched if bundle identifier is “com.apple.Terminal” or “com.googlecode.iterm2”.

{
    "type": "frontmost_application_if",
    "bundle_identifiers": [
        "^com\\.apple\\.Terminal$",
        "^com\\.googlecode\\.iterm2$"
    ]
}

Investigate the bundle identifier and file path

You can find the bundle identifier and file path by EventViewer > Frontmost Application tab.

Open EventViewer, and then switch the frontmost application to an application which you want to know the bundle identifer or file path.
