Hello,

I am facing this behaviour: when searching for thin index, I see events of sourcetype=broker, like shown in the image below.

When searching only for sourcetype=broker, no event shows up:

Any idea why?

Thanks to @joao_amorim

Found my mistake:

[broker]
DEST_KEY = MetaData:Sourcetype
REGEX = (B1)
FORMAT = sourcetype::broker

Agree on that, but what about if the search "index=esi_tests sourcetype=broker" also does not return any values?

Can you add sourcetype value using field picker to your search?

Yes I did that in my splunk. Also, to prevent hidden spaces in my sourcetype name, I used this:

index=esi_tests | search sourcetype=b*.

Also got no results

Hello, TiagoTLD1
By default splunk searches index=main (default index)
so it may be the reason of such behavior
