Hi @Kk,

if you have a field that contains the password (called e.g. "password", you could try something like this:

your_search
| rex field=password "(?<check>\W)"
| eval status=if(isnull(check),"yes","not")
| where status="yes"

Ciao.

You could use rex to extract from the field the non-special characters e.g. [a-zA-Z0-9] and compare that to the original field and if they are the same, then there are no special characters present.
