Key Value Pairs with Spaces

ezajac
Path Finder

A developer made a change to the logging that they were managing. They added a new Key Value Pair and the results now have spaces ie Operation=Web Service Call: callABCService. Splunk Search is classifying this as Operation=Web. Is there a quick fix that I can make in Transforms or Props to work around this?

Thank you

Is each KV pair on a line by itself? If so you can just do something like the following:

props.conf

REPORT-bad_dev_format = kv-spaces

transforms.conf

[kv-spaces]
DELIMS = "\n","="

Otherwise paste a copy of an event and maybe we can suggest a transforms solution.

Easiest way is to get the developer to quote their output. So Operation="Web Service Call: callABCService".

I have a similar problem, but with a product I can't change the logging on, so any other advice would be wonderfully helpful.
