Getting Data In

Accessing metadata from the format option in transforms.conf

Communicator

Functionally, here's what I am looking to do.

I want to take the host (NJROS1BVA0597), append the source type (VM88 or VM11) identified in the props.conf and then re-write that to the host field.

So if the log is CAPPM_UPDATEDB.log, at the end of this, NJROS1BVA0597VM11 would be written to the host field.

My regex seems to be working In the format option, because the $0 gets me the original host name without a problem.
It's getting the source type to append to it, that is the problem.

My probably feeble attempt MetaData:Sourcetype does not work.

input.conf

[monitor://\\njros1bva0597\d$\LogFiles\W3SVC1\]
disabled = 0
host = NJROS1BVA0597
index=imaging
whitelist = \.log$

Props.conf

[source::...\\CAPPM*.log] 
sourcetype = VM11

[source::...\\ex*.log] 
sourcetype = VM88

[VM88]
TRANSFORMS-hostname = rewrite_host

Transforms.conf

[rewrite_host]
SOURCE_KEY = MetaData:Host
REGEX = .*
DEST_KEY = MetaData:Host
FORMAT = $0MetaData:Sourcetype
