Hi umsundar2015 ,

Are the values "Full","Expanded" etc are already part of raw event which is ingested in splunk? If so you can use field extractions.

Settings-->Fields-->FieldExtractions-->choose source or source type and their respective value..choose sample event, select regular expression and then highlight the values "Full","Expanded"etc in the sample selected event and create a filed and change the permissions of this field extraction to app /global level...this will create new filed that you can select from left pane of in the search bar.

If this does not work...if you can share mock sample event of your usecase then we can take a look at it.

Let us know how it goes.

index=saesdp-server |fillnull|search status=Installed install_status=Installed company!=MNPD operational_status=Operational u_environment!=Dev u_environment!=Lab u_environment!=Dev u_environment!=Pilot u_environment!=QA os!="Windows" support_group!="MNDP" os!="os" u_os!="Windows" |eval name=lower(name)

This is my base search , which will be further joined with one more index

And what is the logic for populating the compliance field?

It should be included in search like this ,
index=saesdp-server |fillnull|search status=Installed install_status=Installed company!=MNPD operational_status=Operational u_environment!=Dev u_environment!=Lab u_environment!=Dev u_environment!=Pilot u_environment!=QA os!="Windows" support_group!="MNDP" os!="os" u_os!="Windows" |eval name=lower(name)
|eval calculated_compliance=if(calculated_compliance="Full","Full","Expanded")

Can you please help in creating this field ,
