Magnetic fields are fundamental to the dynamics of both accretion disks and the jets that they often drive. We review the basic physics of these phenomena, the past and current efforts to model them numerically with an emphasis on the jet-disk connection, and the observational constraints on the role of magnetic fields in the jets of active galaxies on all scales
