Monitoring Splunk

Splunk Active Directory Logs

Path Finder

Hi Splunkers,

With the Splunk Active Directory logs, Splunk parses the event as though there's no difference between the actor and the target of a critical event like a new account being created. How can i able to give a different name to the targeted account? Is there any way other than Regex?


Attaching a screenshot. TIA

Hi @revanthammineni,

no regex is the only way to extract that kind of data.

Anyway, I had many problems with regexes, but when I learned to use them a new world was open for me, so I recommend that you work hard to learn how to use regexes.
