Filter messages based on string in array in JSON

New Member

I am looking at filtering Kafka messages in Splunk. For that I need to be able to filter which messages show up in my search. However, since I am new to Splunk, I have no idea how to filter the way I want and 2 days of tutorials, reading and messing about haven't brought me any closer to the solution. My even data looks like this:

2020-04-01 13:59:55:803 INFO [messageCoordinator] Sent Kafka message {
"body":{
    "id":"messageID",
    "name":"messageName",
    "channels":"affectedChannels",
    "order":messageOrder, 
    ... 
 },
"headers":{
    "deltaFields":[
        "status",
        "otherString"
    ],
    "level":"messageLevel",
    "operationType":"UPDATE",
    "messageType":"messageType",
    "timestamp":1585746000000,
    "trackingId":6651814029
}

}

Now I need to filter based on headers.deltaFields, which is always present, always a string array but can have multiple values (up to 8 strings) in the array.

I only want the event to show up in my search if certain strings are within the deltaFields. Any help would be highly appreciated.

I only want to see the event in the search when I have headers.deltafields contains 'otherString'

index=your_index sourcetype=yours (otherString AND deltaFields)

Just search with strings
