Can the XML REST API _raw field highlighting be turned off?

The XML REST API is returning mangled results. It looks like it is applying some sort of highlighting syntaxt to the _raw field;

The contents of the raw filed have the search string I queried for wrapped by <sg h="1">[query string]</sg>. Is there a way to turn this behaviour off?

Unfortunately this is not possible. I will file a request on your behalf to allow this.

This is specific to the PowerShell SDK, and somewhat ugly, but might give you some ideas on hacking your way around this quirk.

In Splunk-Search.psm1, on line 142, I changed this:

{$_.k -eq "_raw"}           { $Myobj.Add("raw",$_.v.'#text');continue}

to this:

{$_.k -eq "_raw"}   {
    $rawTemp =  $_.v.OuterXml     
    $rawTemp = $rawTemp -replace "<v xml:space=`"preserve`" trunc=`"0`">", ""    
    $rawTemp = $rawTemp -replace "<sg h=`"1`">", "" 
    $rawTemp = $rawTemp -replace "</sg>", ""   
    $rawTemp = $rawTemp -replace "</v>", ""
    #write-host "rawTemp: $rawTemp";
    $Myobj.Add("raw",$rawTemp);continue}

Good luck

Yes, please, on that request. This is greatly interfering with my JAXB handling of the results.

BTW, this was also asked three years ago, in
