Spath command to extract JSON from _raw event

sbd12b
Explorer

This is the basic case:

I have an event

2021-12-28T06:24:17.567|SEARCHING|{"field1":"value1","field2":5,"field3":"la la la"}

My search 

index="redact" SEARCHING | spath path="field3"

Splunk is separating the values, but field3 column is empty for all events.

 

Can anyone please assist?

Try this.

index="redact" SEARCHING | rex field=_raw "(?<_raw>\{.*\})" | spath | table field3

My Sample Search :

| makeresults | eval _raw="2021-12-28T06:24:17.567|SEARCHING|{\"field1\":\"value1\",\"field2\":5,\"field3\":\"la la la\"}" | rex field=_raw "(?<_raw>\{.*\})" | spath | table field3

This worked perfect. Thank you for your help!

I had to change the "<" and ">"  to entities and it worked amazing!
