Examples using kvform?

Super Champion

Does anyone know of any examples of using the kvform search command. The kvform docs seem a bit sparse to me, and I haven't been able to locate any working examples. I'd like to see examples including input files and all configs involved and their locations relative to an app folder.

The docs are unclear on a few points:

  • What location should the form files be placed? (The docs talk about $PLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/.../form, but does that mean there's a folder called "form"? is it located under local or default.). I assume '...' is the app name.
  • Can you only extract one field at a time using the kvform search command?
  • Is it possible to setup automatic extraction for a specified sourcetype via props?

I am pretty sure it is broken.

Sample app here:

To replicate, import the sample data, ensure you are in the kvform_example app, and run this search:
source="students.txt" | kvform form=students

I will third that. Some documented examples would be nice.

I'd be interested to see this expanded out too. The documentation & examples are definitely lacking.
