Route and filter universal forwarder for two apps

Engager

Hope everyone is keeping safe.

I'm following this document https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/latest/Forwarding/Routeandfilterdatad (Discard specific events and keep the rest)
The first app is working as expected, however when I've created a second app the filtering is not working
Both apps send data to same index, but the apps are on different servers and different logs. we are using Universal Forwarders
App1

[ ~/etc/deployment-apps/app1/local] $ cat props.conf
[uLinga]
TRANSFORMS-set= setnull,setparsing

[ ~/etc/deployment-apps/app1/local] $ cat transforms.conf
[setnull]
REGEX = .
DEST_KEY = queue
FORMAT = nullQueue

[setparsing]
REGEX = INFRASFT
DEST_KEY = queue
FORMAT = indexQueue

App2
[ ~/etc/deployment-apps/app2/local] $ cat props.conf
[Aux]
TRANSFORMS-set = setnull,setparsing

[ ~/etc/deployment-apps/app2/local] $ cat transforms.conf
[setnull]
REGEX = .
DEST_KEY = queue
FORMAT = nullQueue

[setparsing]
REGEX = INFO|ERROR|WARN
DEST_KEY = queue
FORMAT = indexQueue

Thank you

Run:

splunk btool transforms list --debug

You will likely find that you need to uniquely name your transform stanzas otherwise one will overwrite the other...

Esteemed Legend

You need to separate your stanza names so that they are not competing, like this:

[~/etc/deployment-apps/app1/local] $ cat props.conf:

[uLinga]
TRANSFORMS-set= uLinga_setnull, uLinga_setparsing

[ ~/etc/deployment-apps/app1/local] $ cat transforms.conf:

[uLinga_setnull]
REGEX = .
DEST_KEY = queue
FORMAT = nullQueue

[uLinga_setparsing]
REGEX = INFRASFT
DEST_KEY = queue
FORMAT = indexQueue

[ ~/etc/deployment-apps/app2/local] $ cat props.conf:

[Aux]
TRANSFORMS-set = Auz_setnull, Aux_setparsing

[ ~/etc/deployment-apps/app2/local] $ cat transforms.conf:

[Aux_setnull]
REGEX = .
DEST_KEY = queue
FORMAT = nullQueue

[Aux_setparsing]
REGEX = INFO|ERROR|WARN
DEST_KEY = queue
FORMAT = indexQueue
