Hi Community,

Is there a way to get specific data from your log strings and put them in tabular format?

We have logs like activity xxxx failed for account yyyy and for user zzzz

So we need data xxxx, yyyy and zzzz as search data in tabular format for our alerts. Any help is appreciated..!

 

Thanking you in anticipation..!

Hi

This is one of Splunk's basic features. You can pick fields/words/values from log events and then analysis / present those. For your above examples you can do it like:

| makeresults
| eval _raw="activity xxxx failed for account yyyy and for user zzzz"
``` above generate sample data, replace whit your base query ```
| rex "activity (?<activity>[^\s]+) failed for account (?<account>[^\s]+) and for user (?<user>[^s]+)"
| table activity account user

For more examples and trainings you should look e.g. https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/8.2.4/SearchTutorial/WelcometotheSearchTutorial

Will need more info, what sourcetype you are using. As there may be a addon which can do field extractions needed here.
