So I have a macro that has a field variable that I want to use a wildcard and worse the field names tend to have dots. So a good field would be body.system.diskio.write.bytes and I tried using the following:
with the idea is if would error if the field did not at least contain body.system.diskio. I put the underscores in as im not sure it could handle the dots. This does not work for me. Anyone know what im doing wrong here?
EDITED : I only had two options for conditionals and ended up getting it to work with match($BodySystemDiskIoBytes$, "body.system.diskio.write.bytes|body.system.diskio.read.bytes")
Your macro should have single quotes around $field$ so that if your field name has non standard characters (e.g. dots), then it will work, so like this
thanks. This helped somewhat in that it does not fail but now it never fails. I tried taking it one step further and tried LIKE('$BodySystemDiskIoBytes$', "'body.system.diskio'%") but no luck. My failure field im using is "body.system.test.write.bytes"
