Help charting or displaying multiple fields

Path Finder

I'm working on creating either a report with a table or a dashboard to visualize the status of my Windows Audit Policy. The purpose of the report/dashboard is to measure compliance and detect any GPO/Configuration errors. I'm having trouble trying to identify how I'm going to figure out how to implement this.
My events, after a transaction command, look like the following:

Field:                        Values:
Security_System_Extension     Success and Failure
System_Integrity              Success and Failure
Logon                         Success and Failure
Logoff                        Failure
DPAPI_Activity                No Auditing
...and so on....

One way that I could working well is the following chart where the numbers are the result of a stats dc(host) or something:

Chart
.                            Success                 Failure            Success and Failure       No Auditing
Security_System_Extension    4                       0                  100                       0
System_Integrity             0                       0                  104                       0
Logon                        0                       0                  104                       0

Another way involving an eval or replace on a by-field basis could be:

Chart
.                            Compliant                 Non-Compliant
Security_System_Extension    100                       4
System_Integrity             104                       0
Logon                        104                       0

Currently, the only thing that I can think of is creating a dashboard with lots of panels - one for each field - | stats dc(host) by Security_System_Extension

Security_System_Extension                dc(host)
Success                                  4   
Success and Failure                      100

Any recommendations on how to get something like depicted in the other examples?

Hi, This is sample query, How about this?

You search works well, but my problem is I do not have a field named Field in my results. Each of my fields are named differently. I started going down a path of fieldsummary to get a list of fieldnames and assign them to a new field, but I can't seem to figure it out.

Rows 8 and 9 are actually a single line. I'm getting a field named "Field" in my results. The BY clause guarantees Field is there.

P.S.: Nice sample data, to4kawa!!

thanks, @rmmiller You can move in two lines.

@danielransell
My query is a sample, so you can change it to an appropriate field name.
Is the log given as an example different in the first place?

My sample data is supposed to be one big event. My dilemma is having ~60 field names. Your line 8 and 9 works great when each event has a Field value of a, b, c, d, e, f, g. You can then sum by each of those field values. Each event for me has ~60 key value pairs.

It would be great if I could neatly display a single line for each field name (which corresponds to one of Windows Advanced Audit Policy names), and display dc(hosts) by the specific field name.

I may just end up with a dashboard with 60 panels, incorporating your count functions. Alternatively, I may be able to get creative using a fieldsummary command, and using a lookup of the 60 fields I need, then messing with the values column. Just hoping there is a cleaner way.

If your query is properly tabulated, it will work

Thanks for all the help in this. Ultimately, my data did not match your example well - so I made a couple more field extractions and it worked. Originally I created 59 field extractions for each audit policy subcategory. Then Account Lockout would have a value of Success and Failure, and so on and so on 58 more times.

In order to get my report in a manner that I like, I added an extraction for the Audit Policy Name (AuditPolicy_SubCategory in the code below), so that would equal Account Lockout, then I added an extraction for the Audit Policy Value (AuditPolicyValue below), so that would equal Success, Success and Failure, Failure or No Auditing. With these extractions in place, my final search looks like this:

index=idx sourcetype=auditpolicy
| dedup host, AuditPolicy_SubCategory
| table AuditPolicy_SubCategory, AuditPolicyValue
| stats count(eval(AuditPolicyValue="Success")) as Success, count(eval(AuditPolicyValue="Success and Failure)) as "Success and Failure", count(eval(AuditPolicyValue="Failure")) as Failure, count(eval(AuditPolicyValue="No Auditing")) as "No Auditing" by AuditPolicy_SubCategory

Thanks for the help to4kawa. Marking yours as the answer and awarded some points.

I think I see what’s going on - really looking forward to giving this a try on Monday.
