I didn't know what you meant at first, but now I see it.

Pre 10.28 script editor with a very small font in the browser:

And 10.28, with the same size small font. Clearly the script editor bounding window doesn't scale, which is utterly ridiculous. Please fix this nonsense.

I think Jamf should have to release the commit comments for egregious changes like this because you really want to know how someone thought it'd be a good idea.

Hi, everybody!

Jamf Support confirmed this as a product issue - PI-009496. They are working on it.

@KarstenAckmann Where did you find "PI-009496" ?
I've used 'search' on Jamf but can't find this particular number.

@Musicmaker The PI is part of a response within a jamf case. But you are right, the PI is not registered as "Known Issue" below "My Assets".

I totally agree, I reported this and all I got is "deal with it"

This isn't right and should be fixed but to paraphrase the advice of our jamf instructor during a recent 400 training "friends don't let friends code in the jamf script editor!" I myself lost a lengthy script during an exercise because forgot I this simple truism and the connection timed out. So having the edit view be shorter has that benefit... the best of both worlds fix would be to have the view mode show as many lines as the window can accommodate, but in edit mode only 20 lines to discourage using the inline editor for anything but the simplest scripts.

I don't code in it but do use it to quickly revise scripts. I'm currently working on one that is 310 lines to adjust a couple of settings within it and it's like trying to view the script looking through a letterbox.

This means that my workflow has to change to copypasta between Jamf & an editor to make small changes until the issue is fixed and I run another upgrade cycle.

Add this on top of that you can't use the browser search on the scripts page......

Same problem with Extension Attributes, but that has been problematic for some time now. Clearly not a priority:

makes me wonder if the developers are on 13" screens running at a low 720p.... looks fine on there... or why would anyone admining Jamf on a phone need more than 21 lines in the script edit box???

It's great that this is solved in Jamf Pro 10.30. And finally we have search options when you're in the Script section.
Thanks form implementing.
