How to assign a field alias to a json field?

We have the following in props.conf -

FIELDALIAS-alias1 = apiRequest.apiInfo.clientID AS clientID

It doesn't seem to do what we had in mind meaning to alias apiRequest.apiInfo.clientID as clientID.

it's always safe to enclose a field with special characters in single or double quotes.

With Splunk... the answer is always "YES!". It just might require more regex than you're prepared for!

Makes perfect sense @rsennett.

When we do the same exact thing from the UI, the UI adds double-quotes. I guess we need to do the same thing in props.conf.
