Can you help me make a search/query so I can get a list of forwarders using SSL with successful connections?

I am working on the following which gives a more complete picture. Downloading to XLS and then turning on filtering allows you to easily see OS type, ForwarderType, Version, lastIndexer communicated with, etc.

index=_internal source=*metrics.log component=Metrics group=tcpin_connections
| dedup hostname
| table hostname, sourceIp, os, arch, fwdType, version, ssl, guid, lastIndexer, _time
| sort hostname

This works fine on my Splunk 7.0.3
index=_internal source=*metrics.log group=tcpin_connections ssl=true

To have the forwarder and the connect time as a table -
index=_internal source=*metrics.log group=tcpin_connections ssl=true | table sourceHost _time
