Could you please try below -

index=test | rex "(?P\w+.\w+@\w+.\w+)" | rex "details (?P\w+)" | table Name, Email 

Similarly you can extract SSO as well. You will find an option to save it as report/dashboard on right side (above time range picker).

Hi @moiezuddin

I just edited @satishdange's answer to properly show all the characters for the regular expression in the search. The backslashes \ were not displaying properly. Your search above didn't include the backslashes. Can you try the search now with the correctly syntax and see if you still get that error?

Thanks for your effort , but still its not working.
I extracted new fields and tested and named the fields as per my requirement.
Now its showing the results
source="/opt/www/logs/nbcucentral/nbcucentral.log" LastName=* OR Email=* OR SSO=* | table SSO,Email,LastName
Can you please let me know how to get top 20 results of the above query.

What do you mean add it?

If you want to extract more, you can add another rex, if you already have it as a field, then add it after Email.

I did it in the below way
source="/opt/www/logs/nbcucentral/nbcucentral.log" | rex "(?P\w+.\w+@\w+.\w+)" | rex "details (?P\w+)" | rex "details (?P\w+)" | stats count by Name, SSO, Email | Head 20

Here i added SSO field

SSO field need to show Userid like 2065554822
But sso field showing name of the user not his userid .

What i need to do ? Kindly assist
