Retrieve original source value after override?

I have overridden the source values from the default log file path to custom names like "AppLog", "MaintenanceLog", etc, through input.conf:

[monitor://F:\LOGS]
...
source = AppLogs
...

Is there a way to retrieve the original value of the source, F:\LOGS\my_original_log_file_name.log ?

Thanks in advance!

No AFAIK this is only possible for the sourcetype field where the original can be retrieved with the _sourcetype field.

I was afraid that's the case too. Thanks for confirming ziegfried.
