Getting Data In

Renaming Fields in Data

Good Morning,

We are having a bit on an issue with our data "layout". In our wineventlogs we have a field in the XML called Parent Process Name but shows up in our events as Creation Process Name. The issue we are having is our correlation searches are using the Parent Process Name to find certain events so this isn't matching up. I am curious the best way to make sure that Parent Process Name field stays named in this setup and not changed to Creation Process Name. I have attempted to turn on the rendered XML in order to have it come over in this format but to no avail. I have also thought about using transfroms and props.conf but not sure where the switch is taking place. 

Field Example:

Creator Process Name: C:\Program Files\SplunkUniversalForwarder\bin\splunkd.exe

The way that data is flowing is UF ----> Heavy Forwarder ------> Splunk Cloud

Field example would be:
