Help building regex for searches based on cs_username field.

New Member

I'm having no luck building a regex to match cs_usernames. What I'm looking for are two separate searches both based on the
cs_username field. The first search is to find all instances where the usernames are in all CAPS. The second search is to find usernames that end in at least two digits. Example of logs are below:

your log is space delimited.

why do not you use \s and \S?

or try Field Extracter

Hi @Vfinney,
try the following regex

^\d+-\d+-\d+\s+\d+:\d+:\d+\s+\d+\.\d+\.\d+\.\d+\s+\w+\s\/[^ ]+\s+[^ ]+\s+\d+\s+(?<cs_username>[^ ]+)\s+

or using the rex command

your_search
| rex "^\d+-\d+-\d+\s+\d+:\d+:\d+\s+\d+\.\d+\.\d+\.\d+\s+\w+\s\/[^ ]+\s+[^ ]+\s+\d+\s+(?<cs_username>[^ ]+)\s+"
| ...

that you can test at https://regex101.com/r/xyPcQj/1

Ciao.
Giuseppe
