How to add field with random value at index time

Micmac

Hello,

I have a quick question :

There is a way at index time to add a field witch could represent something like an event_id ?

Something like this :

FORMAT = event_id::<any_random_value>

At this time I don't know how to generate a unique value to replace

Thanks,

No. If you're after getting unique id's for events, you could have a look at the _cd field which contains a bucket ID and an address within that bucket. A combination of index and _cd will be unique.
