"No srcField provided for mvfile replacement" in eventgen logs

I'm going crazy trying to troubleshoot this error with eventlog. I'm only using one mvfile replacement type and it is not working. The SA-Eventgen logs tell me this:




time="2023-12-06T19:42:32Z" level=warning msg="No srcField provided for mvfile replacement: "





In my $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/<app>/default/eventgen.conf file, I have:




token.2.token = "(\$customer_name\$)"
token.2.replacementType = mvfile
token.2.replacement = $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/eventgen_yogaStudio/samples/customer_info.txt:1





My customer_info.txt:1 file contains:









I'm getting JSON-formatted events but for customer_name, it's just blank:




   membership: gold
   item: 30-day-pass
   quantity: 4
   ts: 1701892130





I've tried the following sample file names:

  • customer_info.txt
  • customer_info.sample
  • customer_info.csv

Nothing seems to work. I'm going crazy!
