I was going through targeting minions in salt. There I came across a term called glob. Can someone explain with an example what is a glob in Salt-Stack?

Globbing is a term used for matching file name patterns with wild cards. You can see a more detailed definition here https://searchsecurity.techtarget.com/definition/globbing

As it relates to Salt Stack, it's finding the minion id using wild cards. Additional details here: https://docs.saltstack.com/en/latest/topics/targeting/globbing.html
