How do I extract the latest occurrence of a field from multiple lines?


Want to capture the latest occurrence of "working_condition_check - status -" which is "Stopped".

Please help me in getting the regex.

Below is the log message.

working_condition_check - status - Running
working_condition_check - status - Stopped
