How to remove slashes from ACS or ISE logs?

not so much a question... more of an answer.

i had a lot of log messages with slashes before the field separating commas. something like:

2015-01-05T14:47:25+00:00 acs02 CSCOacs_Passed_Authentications 0014607956 6 5  ExternalGroups=cn=my-group\,ou=Groups\,dc=my-org\,dc=com, ...

ACS version is acs-5.5.0.46-B.723. splunk 6.1.3 and TA for ACS is the latest.

i've added the following line to my props.conf to clean that event data from ACS logs. same trick i used from an old version of the ISE app. i'm fairly certain it's a bug / enhancement on the cisco side for both products.

[cisco:acs]
SEDCMD-clean_logs = s/\\\,/,/g

Nice work. I haven't seen this in the samples that I have. You may want to edit this question to have a a question like "How can I remove these slashes from my ACS logs?" and then answer it. That way we can upvote it and it can be marked as answered!
