Can't use eval function on fields extracted from json log using spath

New Member

I have extracted fields from a json log using spath, I want to add double quotes to the tabled results using ... | eval myval="\"".myval."\"" but no eval function seems to work on the fields extracted in this way. What am I doing wrong??

Hi

You jus need one set of \" in the beginning and one in the end, like this

| eval myval="\""+myval+"\""

Any field that I have extracted from the json log using spath, when I try to apply ANY eval function, comes up blank when I try to table it

@myobmatt can you add some JSON data sample along with the field name that spath extracts?




| eval message="Happy Splunking!!!"
