Splunk Search

Adding additional field from one json field.


Hi all,

I just started discovering Splunk. I am extracting a file containing JSON data. The data looks something like this:

"DevEUI_uplink": {
        "AckRequested": "1",
        "DevLrrCnt": "5",
        "rawMacCommands": "",
        "Late": "0",
        "ADRbit": "1",
        "LrrLON": "6.440177",
        "payload_hex": "00a0723a032805af1eb9006d4a9b000000",
        "Channel": "LC1",
        "FPort": "4",
        "DevAddr": "15293375"

It's a lot longer but you get the idea. Splunk extracts the field fine however "payload_hex" contains data that needs to be extracted into multiple fields. For example the last for characters will be the temperature. Is it possible to do this? If so, where would I do this and how?

EDIT: suggestions about where to learn this or specific tutorials are welcome as well.

Any help is much appreciated!

You can do it by adding search time extraction in props.conf.
i.e EVAL-temprature= substr(DevEUI_uplink. payload_hex,0,4)

You can also write REGEX as well. Please refer docs at


Thank you, i will look into it!
