How to edit or delete a custom field

Engager

I have just created a field, and realized that is not what I want. I would like either delete it and create a new one, or update it. How can I do it?

thanks

I found answer:

In Splunk Web, you navigate to the Field extractions page by selecting Manager > Fields > Field extractions.

For more information, see "Use the Field extractions page in Manager".

How did you create you field extraction?

If you used the IFX (Interactive Field eXtractor), you can do this in...

"Manager">>"Fields">>"Field Extractions">> Choose field for modifying/deleting.

If you did this in props.conf (you can also remove those created in IFX) this way too... you can find the props.conf files containing the extractions and modify/hash/remove the extraction and restart the Splunk services. The props.conf file will be in one of the following locations...

$SPLUNK_HOME/etc/system/default/props.conf
$SPLUNK_HOME/etc/system/local/props.conf
$SPLUNK_HOME/etc/system/apps/<appName>/props.conf
$SPLUNK_HOME/etc/system/apps/<appName>/props.conf
