WindowsUpdateLog

Hi,
I have Splunk for Windows installed and want to check the WindowsUpdate log.
I am receiving the log correctly and have setup sourcetype to be WindowsUpdateLog as needed.
However I don't have any fields extracted.
I tested by applying the transform pid-tid-component_for_windowsupdatelog manually as:

rex "^\S+\s+\S+\s+(?<pid>\S+)\s+(?<tid>\S+)\s+(?<component>\S+)"

And the fields are extracted correctly.
Why aren't they being extracted on regular search? I must be missing something...
Thanks

Found the problem.
The fields objects (transform and report) where by default configured in App context only so did not work on the Search app.
Changing the relevant objects to Global makes it work as expected.

Why can't I edit my post?
Whem I try to edit the title and save, it say "This field is required" under "update summary" although I fill it up.
