You can try it out in a search with rex like so;

... | rex "^(?<log_level>[A-Z]+)" | rex "\|(?<domain>\S+)" | rex ":(?<filename>\S+)$" 

If this works out well, you can make them more permanent adding the configurations to props.conf;

[your_sourcetype]
EXTRACT-log_level = ^(?<log_level>[A-Z]+)
EXTRACT-domain = \|(?<domain>\S+)
EXTRACT-file = :(?<filename>\S+)$
