Editing an indexed log


We made a mistake and logged a few 1000 fields in an event with a wrong format. Is there any way that we could edit these logs and change the already indexed events?


Indexed events cannot be changed, modified, or edited. The best you can do is delete them and re-index them with the correct format.
