Datamodel autoextractSearch

Hi community,

When using datamodels, is it possible to remove/exclude the portion of the autoextractSearch: | search (index=* OR index=_*)

Hi @hank72,

sorry but what's the issue?

in this way, you're sure that all the indexes are used to populate Data Models even if they aren't in the the default search path.

Anyway, if you want to limit the indexes used in one or all Data Models (I don't understand why!), you can modify the macro used in the contrains of each Data Model.

Ciao.

@gcusello, Thank you for your response.  No issue "yet", just trying to think this through. 

If Workload Management's Admission Rules are set to not allow index=*, will this break any/all DMs that use the autoextractSearch (index=* OR index=_*)

Hi @hank72.,

As I said, in this way your are sure to load into the Data Models all the data from al indexes even if they aren't in the default search path.

If you want, youculd limit the indexes to read for each Data model, but there's no reason to do this, so my hint is to leave it as it is.

let us know if we can help you more, or, please, accept one answer for the other people of Community.

Ciao and happy splunking
