Getting Data In

How to tag events based on the host value that contains a condition?

Events from our DEV/PROD servers are ingested into the same index. This index already has events since 1 year.
The only way to distinguish the dev and prod events is if the host contains DEV or Prod in this value.
How can I tag the events based on the host value that contains a condition?

Thank you

You first set an eventtype with a name like dev_hosts and set it equal to host IN("foo*", "*-dev-*", "*etc") and then create a tag with a name of dev_hosts set to eventtype=dev_hosts.
