Cannot filter WMI events to nullQueue in 4.2.x

Splunk Employee

I am sending some events to the nullQueue and it used to work in 4.0.x and 4.1.x, but now it is not sending any events to nullQueue. I have the following configuration:

props.conf
[wmi] 
TRANSFORMS-nuke=wmi2nullQ

transforms.conf 
[wmi2nullQ] 
REGEX=(?im)(CategoryString=Logoff)[^$]+\s+(EventIdentifier=4634)
DEST_KEY = queue
FORMAT = nullQueue

Why does this no longer work? Nothing has changed since applying a newer 4.2.x release.

In 4.0.x and 4.1.x the stanza in props.conf had to be [wmi]

With 4.2.x you must use the actual sourcetype name.

For example:

[WMI:WinEventLog:Security]

TRANSFORMS-send2nullq= wmi2nullQ
