Hello.

I've got a query that i'm trying to save as a Dashboard Panel. I have used the SOH character in my query and this is causing the below errors when saving. Could anyone advise please?

You're better off cleaning the data first;

you can do this at the sourcetype level in the props.conf by adding;

SEDCMD-ccremove=s/\x01/|/g

Or at the search line with

rex mode="sed" "s/\x01/|/g"

That will replace your fix SOH with a pipe delimiter. You can then use an | extract pairdelim="|" kvdelim="="

this will automatically extract your kv pairs

or you can replace the SOH in your rex with \W (rex for not a word character) so..
"\W455=(\w+)"

or on the search line

| rex mode="sed" "s/\x01/|/g"

after that you'll have a pipe delimiter for your kv pairs, you can rex the field or use and extract pairdelim to get your field.
