kvmode=json and field aliases

When using kvmode=json to carve fields, when I try to create a field alias to make the fields CIM compliant, they don't appear to take. I assume there is a precedence here. Is there a way to accomplish this while still having the fields initially extracted with kvmode?
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks,

Are you saying, "I have complete control of the format of my logs which are in json format and I am adding field names that are CIM-compliant"? If so, then the only thing that could be wrong is that you're event is not fully-valid json but in that case it would not be some fields that are missing; it would be ALL fields.

Hi RD,

I did face a similar issue before, i did force some required fields, which worked in my case.
