Can i rename row values

NS
Explorer

from the table output, i want to rename row values for few fields, say for eg:

Column 1 Column 2
1 AAA
2 C
3 D
4 MMM
5 MMM
6 DDD

 

I want the result to look like below:

Coulmn 1 Column 2
1 Apple
2 Carrot
3 Drumstick
4 Mango
5 Mango
6 Drumstick

 

Basically, I have a list for mapping, Any letter begins with A to be renamed as Apple, and the ones with D to be renamed as Drumstick, and so on.

Can someone please help me? I am quite new to Splunk.

Thanks in advance.

Here's one way to do that.  There may be others, perhaps including one that uses a lookup table.

| eval Column2 = case(Column2=="AAA", "Apple", Column2=="C", "Carrot", Column2=="D" OR Column2=="DDD", "Drumstick", Column2=="MMM", "Mango", 1==1, Column2)

This worked perfectly, thank you.

Can you also let me know if i can categorize all the fruits in Column 2 and add a column with the total number of fruits.

I expect the result to be like this:

CategoryColumn 2
FruitApple
VegCarrot
VegDrumstick
FruitMango
FruitMango
VegDrumstick

 

Your help is much appreciated.
