How to extract fields from a JSON?

New Member

Hello everybody,

I have the next event registered in my splunk:

Fri Mar 31 11:05:18 COT 2017 name=amqp_msg_received event_id=null msg_queue=seguros.traza.documentoValidado msg_exchange=seguros.cuadre.documentoValidado msg_body={"valid": true}

And what i need is to extract the value of "valid", the source_type of the event is json_no_timestamp, how could i do this?

I have tried using spath without luck, any advice?

Splunk must have extract field msg_body with some values as it's in classic kv format. What value do you get as part of msg_body field? Will the msg_body always going to contain "valid" or it may be something else?
