How do I parse my XML data into multiple fields?

Is there a way to break this xml into fields. Customer needs it broken like such:

Would you use spath on something like this?

FIELDNAME/Key1:
COMPUTER.USERRIGHT.MBR.N.D.C.WKNOWN
VALUE1:
ZZZ-ZZV-ZZ141.SSPRIVILEGE.MBR."Domain Admins".CFFY.GROUP.FALSE
FIELDNAME/Key2:
COMPUTER.USERRIGHT.MBR.N.D.C.MBR_WKNOWN
VALUE2:
ZZZ-ZZV-ZZ141.SSPRIVILEGE.MBR."CFFY-SS-TIER A TECK".CFFY.GROUP.FALSE

You may have to just extract all of the values as separate fields first, e.g. computer, MBR, ... Then do an eval to create the fields that you actually want from the extracted fields.

I think you are right. I will let this post linger for a while and see if someone has a "silver bullet" answer.

Typically I add a statement in props.conf to let Splunk know it is XML.

[yoursourcetype]
 KV_MODE = xml
 NO_BINARY_CHECK = 1
 SHOULD_LINEMERGE = false
 TRUNCATE = 0
 pulldown_type = 1

Then to combine the fields that were extracted you can use the eval command to join different fields together.
