How to rename dynamic input results

Sorry, I am new to Splunk. Now I use a dynamic dropdown to generate all the results, like below:

index=dev-app host=hadoopdn* $importids$ $batchids$ $stages$ |stats count by groupName

Now the query result is like:

FileSystemCounters   10
*.FileType        14
*.StatsCounters      3
*$Counter           6

The problem is the prefix is too long to display.
Is there a way that can only display the latter part?
Like "StatsCounters" instead of "*.StatsCounters"
Maybe use an alias?

@lyf1995123,

If you have a pattern in the group name , you could use regex to extract it.

For e.g. from your above examples

     index=dev-app host=hadoopdn* $importids$ $batchids$ $stages$ |stats count by groupName
    | rex field=groupName "\*?[.$]?(?<groupName >\w+)"

What I want is the result generated like this: stats count by groupName |rex field=groupName mode=sed "s/^\w.+./""/g"

Inspired by your answer, I think what I am looking for is like "stats count by groupName |rex field=groupName mode=sed "s/^\w.+./""/g"".
And it worked as I expected. But thanks still.
