When is "site" generated?

I'm trying to use eval to calculate another field, using something simple

newfield = eval if(like(http_request,"%"+site+"%"),1,0)

This works fine from the search command line, but does not evaluate when I do it as an automatic field calculation, it's like the "site" field has not yet been defined and I cannot find where that is configured. Any ideas?

Hi

Please check out the documentation page for the app. There's some steps you need to do to configure it. The site fields comes from a lookup.

Have you looked to see if 'site' field occurs earlier in the search-time order of operations? (https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/8.0.2/Knowledge/definecalcfields)

Also -- I've sometimes had to rename fields (e.g., add a z prefix) to make sure a field I need to reference is calculated prior to this calculated field.

That's part of the problem, I cannot even find where the "site" field is defined - it's not in extractions, calculated or aliases.

Check out props.conf (search for 'site'.)

From transforms.conf in the app...

external_type = kvstore
fields_list = _time,site,user,http_session,http_session_start,http_session_end,http_session_pageviews,http_session_duration,http_session_referrer,http_session_referrer_domain,http_session_referrer_hostname,http_session_channel
