My csv file has  "month" field and the values are as below :

 

2020-10
2020-09
2020-08
2020-07
2020-06
2020-05
2020-04
2020-03
2020-02
2020-01

 

 

I want to convert the months from number to Jan, Feb, Mar, Apr and so on... I tried using strptime, but that is not working. I want to show it as 2020-Jan, 2020-Feb, 2020-Mar... 

Please help , below is my query :

 

index=azure sourcetype=azure_total_cost source="C:\total_cost\\azure_total_cost_by_year.csv" month!="month" | eval mymonth=strftime(month, "%Y-%b")

Add a dummy "day" to the month and try converting it

|makeresults|eval month="2020-10"|eval nMonth=month."-01"|eval formattedMonth=strftime(strptime(nMonth,"%Y-%m-%d"),"%Y-%b")
