Need to split string with variable number of fields


Hi ,

I have a string like this "details=[ A_0B_0N_0Z_0AB_0AU_0CA_0]^"
I need to split the above string by '_' where left side would be a field name and right would be a value. Final requirement is to display all the fileds which has value =10 .
Note: The string might have one or many such field/value combination

Thanks in Advance.

| rename COMMENT AS "Everything above generates sample event data; everything below is your solution"

| rex max_match=0 mode=sed "s/([^_]+)_(\d+)/\1=\2,/g"

@jagdeepgupta813, following is a run any where search based on the data provided. First two pipes here are to mock up provided data. Please try out and confirm if this is what you are looking for.

|  makeresults
|  eval _raw="details=[ A_10B_20N_30Z_40AB_50AU_60CA_70]^"
|  rex field=_raw "details=\[\s(?<details>[^\]]+)\]\^"
|  rex field=details "(?<field>[^_]+)?_(?<value>\d+)" max_match=0
|  eval details=mvzip(field,value)
|  table details
|  mvexpand details
|  eval details=split(details,",")
|  eval field=mvindex(details,0)
|  eval value=mvindex(details,1)
|  fields - details

PS: Since in the data example details is a key value pair i.e. "details=", if details field is available during search time you will also not need first rex on your _raw data. You would need to confirm this as this could boost search performance.

Do you mean that the fields/values in the example are - A=0, B=0, N=0, Z=0, etc.?
