Hi I want to remove everything after a some characters like ? OR & when they come in a field. For example -

/test1/test2&csrkyyt=7968676

Can someone help?

You can use rex with sed to remove all characters after ? OR &.

| rex mode=sed field=FIELD_NAME "s/[&?].*//g"

Hi @Shashank_87,
you can use the rex comman, something like this:

index=my_index
| rex field=my_field "^(?<my_field>[^\&\?]*)"
| ...
