How do I exclude fields with certain values from a table when the event has multiple values for the same fields?

Hi,

As the title says. Refer to the screenshot below too;

The event
The above is the log for the event. as you can see, there are multiple indicatorName in a single event.

The table
And this is the table when I do a top. However, I only want certain values to show. E.g. Only show indicatorName: DETECTED_MALWARE_APP and not indicatorName: CODE_DROP.

If you are trying to eliminate just the words from the multivalue field, then use mvfilter().

| eval Indicator=mvfilter(NOT match(Indicator,"^(POLICY_TERMINATE|MALWARE_DROP)$"))

The doc is on this page...

I tried it with eval threatInfo.indicators{}.indicatorName=mvfilter(match(threatInfo.indicators{}.indicatorName, "DETECTED_MALWARE_APP")) but it's throwing Error in 'eval' command: The expression is malformed. Expected ).

Nevermind, found out the issue. Splunk doesn't like it when my field name is threatInfo.indicators{}.indicatorName. Had to rename it to something else and then it worked. Thank you! Will mark your answer as correct now.
