How do we capture multiple URLs in a single event?

Currently I'm using below regex which captures only one URL,

| rex field=_raw ".*\"(?<URL>((http|https):\/\/(\S+|\d+\.\d+\.\d+\.\d+\S+)))\""

Need all the URLs in the output.

Try without the greedy match at the beginning

| rex max_match=0 field=_raw "\"(?<URL>((http|https):\/\/(\S+|\d+\.\d+\.\d+\.\d+\S+)))\""

I'm afraid, it still gives a single value output like this,

   URL

http://127.0.0.1:8080
