OUTPUTCSV -- No Quotes Please

Path Finder

OUTPUTCSV is currently appending search results surrounded in quotes, like "1.1.1.1."

Is it possible for OUTPUTCSV to NOT surround the output in quotes?

Thanks!

Hi vragosta,

no, this is probably done to handle any non-alphanumeric character correct. See this answer http://answers.splunk.com/answers/114632/when-does-splunk-add-double-quotation-in-outputcsv.html for more details.

cheers, Mus

or use a simple trim after the lookup?

... | head 1 | eval foo="\"quotes\"" | eval boo=trim(foo, "\"") | table foo boo
