Hi @Jasmine ,

as @marnall said a space is missing between the index value and the source condition.

I suppose that the erro is that the argument of the match function in the eval command is a regex, so you don't need to use asterisk:

index=aaa (source="/var/log/testd.log") 
| stats count by host
| eval env=case(
   match(host, "10qe"), "Test",
   match(host, "10qe"), "QA",
   match(host, "10qe"), "Prod")

Some potential problems with your query are:

1. index=aaa(source="/var/log/testd.log")
Does not have a space between the index and source filters

2. the match() functions in your eval env=case() part should have valid regexes in the second argument of the match function, as in match(<field>,<regex>). Try this:
| eval env=case(match(host, ".*10qe.*"), "Test",
match(host, ".*10qe.*"), "QA",
match(host, ".*10qe.*"), "Prod" )

host is same across all the env. i am facing issue when i bind the same value to drop down list saying "Duplicate values causing conflict". But i need dropdown list with TEST/QA/PROD(label) with same host value. - how can i achieve this?
