Splunk Lastname firstname formating


I am using this query to fetch current logged in user "|rest splunk_server=local /services/authentication/current-context | fields realname"
It displays real name as Lastname, Firstname
Now i want a nother field with value "Firstname Lastname" format

Try rex.

... | eval name=realname | rex field=name mode=sed "s/([^,]+), (.*)/\2 \1/"
If this reply helps you, Karma would be appreciated.
