Getting Data In

Search based on a source type overwritten on a per-event basis not returning any events

I've implemented per-event source types assignment as described here: http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/5.0.3/Data/Advancedsourcetypeoverrides Basically it works. For events matching a REGEX source type is overwritten. Unfortunately when I use this source type in a search query no events are returned. Is it because override is done on a search-time instead of an index-time? Is it possible to solve this?

OK, I've solved it. I made a mistake. Instead of FORMAT = sourcetype::<your_custom_sourcetype_value> I wrote FORMAT = <your_custom_sourcetype_value> (I forgot about sourcetype::). It was hard to spot because Splunk was correctly overwriting sourcetype field in search results.
