Props/transforms for stashed data

Contributor

Hi

There are multiple searches generating different stashed data with different markers, sometimes written to different indexes using "collect". We'd like to use props/transforms e.g. for automatic lookups or field extractions.
Unfortunately, the fields host, source and sourcetype aren't specific enough any more, they have the same values for all the populating searches.
Can we somehow set the sourcetype to a predefined value already at collect time? What are the other options, expect doing everything "manually" in the search?

Thanks
Simon

You can do something like this: http://splunk-base.splunk.com/answers/88926/modify-_raw-collect-into-second-index-how-to-best-retain...

Be warned though, writing a sourcetype other than stash into an index should make the entire index count against your license.

Thanks, that's what I've searched for. I'm currently not worried about license volume.

Thx
