There are two options: Field extractions at indexing time or at search time (e.g. CIM compliance).
You can define extractions using RegEx in the transforms.conf at indexing time (e.g. using a heavy forwarder). To do so, you can specify the DEST_KEY after a RegEx to determine where to store your data.

Edit: Ah, too slow. 🙂

Hi ankithreddy777,
see https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/6.5.1/Admin/Transformsconf

DEST_KEY specifies where Splunk stores the expanded FORMAT results in accordance with the REGEX match.

Bye.
