Splunk Search

How can I pass a default value to the map command?

Path Finder

My searce Query is:

index=ies_log ruleid=50513 earliest=-7d@d|eval start_time=relative_time(date,"-5m@m")|eval start_time=strftime(start_time, "%m/%d/%Y:%H:%M:%S")|eval end_time=strftime(date, "%m/%d/%Y:%H:%M:%S" )|fields start_time,end_time,sip,dip,dport |map search="search index=ies_log ruleid=20347 earliest=$start_time$ latest=$end_time$ sip=$sip$ dip=$dip$ dport=$dport$" maxsearches=10000|stats dc(dip)

If no event found before map command, then all the arguments have no value passed,
and the error is:
Error in 'map': Did not find value for required attribute 'st'.

Can I pass a default value to the command? How?

You can do it like this (but I don't know why you would like to do so):

index=ies_log ruleid=50513 earliest=-7d@d|eval start_time=relative_time(date,"-5m@m")|eval start_time=strftime(start_time, "%m/%d/%Y:%H:%M:%S")|eval end_time=strftime(date, "%m/%d/%Y:%H:%M:%S" ) | append [|noop | stats count AS sip| eval start_time=DEFAULT | eval end_time=DEFAULT | eval sip=DEFAULT | eval dip=DEFAULT | eval dport = DEFAULT] |fields start_time,end_time,sip,dip,dport |map search="search index=ies_log ruleid=20347 earliest=$start_time$ latest=$end_time$ sip=$sip$ dip=$dip$ dport=$dport$" maxsearches=10000|stats dc(dip)

It is not exactly what you asked, though, because the default will always run as the last map.

U resolved my question, thanks!

I can pass an invalid data to the arguments, so the last map can't search it.

If no default value given, then no event whose ruleid is 50513 is found, the search report error, but i want it returns 0.
