I have a variable temp = 2019/19/09_04:02:49:344 and I want to remove all the special character from it like 20191909040249344.

Rather than list every possible special character, another way is to exclude characters that are non-digits:

| makeresults 
| eval temp="2019/19/09_04:02:49:344"
| rex mode=sed field=temp "s/[\D]+//g"

Hi,

If you want to remove special character during search time, you can try below search. In below example I am assuming that you have time in temp field

<yourBaseSearch>
| rex mode=sed field=temp "s/[_!@#$%^&*(),.?\":{}|<>\/\\\\]//g"
