filldown by clause?

Engager

i have events for player accounts, which have player-levels, and have additional events for these accounts, which dont have the field player_level, looks e.g like this

GENERAL-EVENT [ account-name=xxx account-level=1]

GENERAL-EVENT [ account-name=xxx account-level=2]

SPECIAL-EVENT [ account-name=xxx other-field=xxx]

GENERAL-EVENT [ account-name=xxx account-level=3]

SPECIAL-EVENT [ account-name=xxx other-field=xxx]

SPECIAL-EVENT [ account-name=xxx other-field=xxx]

GENERAL-EVENT [ account-name=xxx account-level=4]

and i want to give the SPECIAL-EVENTS the field account-level at which this special-thing has "happened".

so i found
| filldown account-level


which works well as long i do a search only over one account-name, but when i want to do searches over all accounts there is nothing like

| filldown account-level by account-name

is there any work-around?????

i'm using 4.3.3


edit: i tried variants with streamstats, but somehow when i use it for a bigger timeframe with many data, it dowsnt work the right way, cuz at some account-levels the level-sum contains 0 special-events, but where i know, that there are some, when i use the search for a specific account.

Streamstats can do that:

... | reverse | streamstats last(account-level) as account-level by account-name | reverse | ...

This would assign 2 to the first special event and 3 to the second and third special event. Without the reversing it would assign 3 to the first special event and 4 to the second and third special event.

Maybe there's a more efficient way than my crude double-reverse, but off the top of my head that's the easiest way of making streamstats work in reverse.

yes i know this usage (im actually often using | sort 0 +_time ... wonder which one is the "faster")

but the problem is somehow that with big data something stops working, i could imagine of something like maxout or smth, but i cant find any error message in the inspection (any of u have another hint what can be the reason?).
