You could try this?

props.conf
[your_sourcetype]
EXTRACT-username,project = ^.*?\logs\D+\d_(?[^]+)(?[^_]+) in source

You will need to adjust the regex as I made it pretty quick and it is unlikely to match all the cases you have which you haven't provided.

can you show some sample events to understand better
from your explanation you can try:
in props.conf -

[sourcetype_name]
 REPORT-myUniqueClassName = myTransform

in transforms.conf -

[myTransform]
  REGEX = (\w+)=(\w+)
  FORMAT = $1::$2
