Anybody have an idea for base64 decoding of fields in Splunk 6.5

Contributor

Hi.

I have upgraded to Splunk 6.5, and have a new source, with some base64 encoded values.
I have tried looking at the varios add-ons, I could find, but none of them seems to support Splunk6.5.

Any ideas are welcome.

Thanks.

I don't think there is any other option (right now) than building your own command if you can't use an existing add-on/app.

Note, many times an add-on or an app built for 6.2 or 6.3 will actually work on 6.5 - the author hasn't tested or indicated as such on Splunkbase.

Regardless, looking at either of the two old apps/add-ons may be an opportunity for you to learn the ins and outs of building your own SPL commands.

I built a macro to convert base64 fields and append them to your search results since I wasn't able to install apps with my privileges.
