Log ingested having xml tags that are not having fields extracted and named as per the tags?

Explorer

• Attached you will see a sample of the log I am working with. <-- tried to attach it but not enough points. Haha!

• You will see in the body of the log row there are xml tags. Like CorrelationId, MessageId, DateTime, Status, Action, Message.

• I would think that Splunk would at least attempt to recognized these "xml tagged" field and name them.

• Is it not recognizing the xml tags because the FULL log is not xml tagged & the beginning few positions aren't xml tagged?

• Any thoughts or suggestions appreciated.

Hi, @timothytruax
If there is data in _raw , it can be extracted like this.

Is there ANY OTHER way I can get this image of the log row to you?

What appears to be happening is the timestamp fields can vary in length and appearance; so when we attempt to use the extractor to create as field that is past one of those varying timestamps we get unmatched rows in the extractor.

For some reason when I copy / paste the log row this field strips out my xml tags.
Also when I try to upload a small image of the log row this site tells me I do not have enough points to upload the file.
Therefore this site and any interaction thru the SPLUNK provided field for pasting data is virtually worthless!

To avoid losing XML tags and other formatting characters, enclose the text within backtics (`) or highlight it and click the code button (101010).

There are no XML tags in the sample log row.

I am unable to upload an image of this log row - AND - when I copy and paste the text of the log row it strips out my xml tags. How else can I get the text or an image of this log row to you.

For some reason they say I do not have enough "points" to upload a small image of the log row.
