During a recent training, someone in the room was going through some hands-on training activities on how to ask Tanium Questions. As he was working through some Questions using some filters, he asked what a lot of others ask about: Can you use regular expressions in Questions?
Here's a related follow up from Friday's Basic Tips on Asking Questions article. In some cases you may run into "[no results]" when you're first ramping up on how to use Tanium.

...whenever I explain how to ask Questions to people, I like to start with a brief explanation of the two parts of a Tanium Question.
