New Member

I have a field which contains various data, one of the data is the file hash. I would like to extract it to a field.

Tue Jul 15 09:32:03 CET 2019 app=testapp file_hash=aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa1234567890123456 os=linux

I would like to extract the file_hash: 32 chars only letters and numbers.

Many thanks.
