Any other way to compare between the same variable?


Hey Guys,

I have a problem: I have two time fields because one of the type source is json file and there is another script running, but now I have to mix both, so I created this eval:


| eval _time=if(match(source, "[(\S).json]\w+"), strptime(time, "%Y/%m/%d %H:%M:%S.%f"), _time)


but when I search I just receive the .json file search, so Is there any other way to "join"?, or at least the "if" statement ignore and just modify the json source?

The regex used in the match function appears to match more than is intended.  Because of the dot with the square brackets, the expression will match anything.  Try this command:


| eval _time=if(match(source, "\S\.json\w"), strptime(time, "%Y/%m/%d %H:%M:%S.%f"), _time)
