Why the key field is missing from the KVStore


I defined a custom key field for my KVStore and have a savedsearch loads contents to all fields (include key); however, when checking the data, the key field is missing from the KVStore. Any clues?

The key won't display by default. If I want to view the key field, I add this to a search:

| eval key=_key

This will make it visible in tables/stats/etc.
