I have two fields, application and servletName. I'd like to have them as column names in a chart. I'm currently trying to use eval to make a new variable named fullName, and concatenate the values for application and servletName with a dash(-) in the middle. How do I do this?
Well...a typo did it.
eval fullName=applicationName. "-" .servletName
Turns out that not putting the right name of a field causes the entire operation to return nada.
This is a question that has many hits. I just wanted to point out that there is another possibility
<basesearch> | strcat field1 " some text: " field2 " more text: " field3 newField
This will concatenate fields and text to the new field 'newField'
strcat has the advantage that it will still create the new field if one of the fields that are concatenated are empty/missing
Excellent! This is what I needed to concatenate a tag to another string. Eval is not working for this, but this is :
| strcat host "(" tag::host ")" label
