Take this as an example:
I have a file path /opt/splunk/var/log/splunk/splunkd.log
There is already a field extraction done for this called file_name.
I would like to do a filed extraction with just the Directory path ( /opt/splunk/var/log/splunk/) and name dir_name.
The problem arises when I try to do a new extraction, as the path is sort of already used by file_name and splunk mentions that I need "To highlight text that is already part of an existing extraction, first turn off the existing extractions"
My doubt here is. If I turn of the existing extraction and then create one for dir_name, would I still be able to use file_name or does that get over-ridden by the new extraction?
