Can I filter on MV field with 6.0+ UF?

Path Finder

Hello all!

In regards to the Windows Event Log filtering in the newer 6.0+ forwarders. I'm looking for some help on filtering out events what aren't required for us to keep and are really eating into our license usage. The event code is 4624 and I want to remove events where the second Secrurity_ID filed contains a "$" at the end.

I've tried the following with no luck and am wondering if this is even possible:

blacklist3 = EventCode=4624 SecurityID="NULL SID" SecurityID="DOMAIN*$"

From what I understand in the docs, for the event to be filtered out it needs to match all conditions of the blacklist. Based on my testing I am fairly certain this isn't the way to identify the second value of a field. Can anyone point me in the right direction to get this to work?

Thanks in advance!

Do you have a blacklist1 and blacklist2, too? I don't think blacklist3 will work without them. If you don't, then try this (escaping the dollar sign, too):

blacklist1 = EventCode=4624 Security_ID="NULL SID" Security_ID="DOMAIN*\$"
