TA for Symantec Endpoint Protection (syslog): "Bad regex value...two named subpatterns have the same name"

Path Finder

We have installed the TA for Symantec Endpoint Protection (syslog) (https://splunkbase.splunk.com/app/3121/) and noticed upon restarting splunkd, we get the following error:

Bad regex value: '(?:[[sep_file_preifx]])\s*(?<Server_Name>[[sep_file_field]])\s*(?<Domain>[[sep_file_field]]),\s*(?<Server_Name>[[sep_file_field]]),\s*(?<Event_Description>[[sep_file_field]])', of param: transforms.conf / [field_extraction_for_scm_system] / REGEX; why: two named subpatterns have the same name One or more regexes in your configuration are not valid. For details, please see btool.log or directly above. Done

This is on 6.3.5.

you can change the regex, if you place "(?J)" (without the quotes) in front of the regex, duplicate field names are allowed.

I fixed it.

REGEX = (?J)(:[[sepfilepreifx]])\s(?[[sepfilefield]])\s(?[[sepfilefield]]),\s(?[[sepfilefield]]),\s(?[[sepfilefield]])

I'm not getting the error anymore.

Could you, please, elaborate more on this answer? Could you paste the actual REGEX here?

I could not fix the issue by placing (?J) after REGEX =

Thank you.

It has been a long while. I am not sure how exactly I fixed the issue. This is the statement I have now:

REGEX = (?:[[sepfilepreifx]])Site:\s(?P[[sepfilefield]]),\s(?P[[sepfilefield]]),\s(?P[[sepfilefield]]),\s(?P[[sepfilefield]]),\s(?P[[sepfilefield]]),\s(?P[[sepfilefield]]),\s(?P[[sepfilefield]])

It does not error out.

ok.

I did the following:
REGEX = (?J)(:[[sepfilepreifx]])\s(?[[sepfilefield]])\s(?[[sepfilefield]]),\s(?[[sepfilefield]]),\s(?[[sepfilefield]])
