URL Toolbox not parsing ut_domain correctly if a TLD string is part of the domain name

Running the code below will yield ut_domain as ".com" instead of "somethin.shop". It seems like if the subdomain contains a valid TLD string (e.g. .com), then ut_domain is not parsed correctly. A domain "somethingbad.shop" will be parsed correctly as it recognizes .shop as a TLD.

 

 

 

| makeresults | eval domain_full = "something.com.somethin.shop"
| eval list="*" | `ut_parse(domain_full, list)`

 

 

 

 Is it a bug? If so, how can we report it? Any workaround you can think of while waiting for bug fix?

The UT toolbox app relies on some .dat files in the $SPLUNKDIR$/etc/apps/utbox/bin/ directory which list the known TLD suffixes. Unfortunately, ".shop" is not listed in them.

To add the ".shop" tld, you can edit the suffix_list_custom.dat file at:

$SPLUNKDIR$/etc/apps/utbox/bin/suffix_list_custom.dat

and add a line containing "shop". A restart is not required to apply this change.

Then try your query again and the ut_domain field value should now be "somethin.shop" as desired.
