in Choropleth Maps, how do you set feature_id_element from Placemark id?

Builder

I am using the id in the placemark for my featureIdField




I have tried in my transforms several variations:
feature_id_element = /Placemark
feature_id_element = /Placemark/id
feature_id_element = /Placemark[@id]

We don't currently support feature IDs from tag attributes. Your best bet is probably to do a manual Regex search & replace directly in the XML.

Something like this

Search: <Placemark id="(ID_[0-9]+)">
Replace: <Placemark><name>$1</name>

Hacky, but should do the trick.

Since the ID is inside the name tag, Splunk will pick it up automatically and you won't even have to set the feature_id_element for the KMZ

I have also tried, but it does not seem to help.

feature_id_element = /Placemark/@id

This is in greater than and less than signs. It did not copy well, even with & code.

<Placemark id="ID_00000">
