Splunk Search

Extract data via rest api

I have some sample data generated from
curl -k -u admin:password https://localhost:8089/services/search/jobs/export -d search="search index=tweets | multikv from_user start_time" -d earliest_time="-4h" -d latest_time="now" -d output_mode="xml"

How can i extract eg. the from_user and start_time from the _raw field so it gets a ordinary search result field in the search result ?

->

<result offset='1487'>
        <field k='_bkt'>
            <value><text>tweets~39~6909193E-A0BE-4EC0-8F2F-9E47CAE7DEF2</text></value>
        </field>

curl -k -u admin:password https://localhost:8089/services/search/jobs/export -d search="search index=tweets | fields *" -d earliest_time="-4h" -d latest_time="now" -d output_mode="xml"

or a list of fields if you wanna have specific fields kvp's
