Windows TA not Parsing "Error_Code" from 4776 Logs

Searching: index=sec_windows source=wineventlog:security EventCode=4776 action=failure

should return a field called Error_Code which signifies the error encountered by the authenticating user. This field parses "-" for everything which is incorrect. I have tried to use field extractor, but that still hasn't worked. I don't know why.

If I extract the field "inline":

| rex field=Message "Error\sCode:\s+(?0[^\s]+)"

it works but there are way too many events to do this

It looks like there is a field alias overwriting this field. Try adding this to /opt/splunk/etc/apps/Splunk_TA_windows/local/props.conf on your search head:

[source::WinEventLog:Security]
FIELDALIAS-Status_as_Error_Code = Status ASNEW Error_Code
