How do I rename a nested field?

New Member

I have an eval query.

The details object returned looks like this:
status: 404,
code: ERROR

"details.status"=404 | eval detailsStatus=details.status | table detailsStatus

detailsStatus never has a value in the table though. What am I doing wrong?

Using eval and single quotes worked for me, for example: 

namespace="production" container_name="payment-service" type="event" data.event="setup_intent.setup_failed" | eval userId = 'data.event_data.data.object.metadata.user_id' | table userId

I've done that before, but don't recall if I used |eval detailsStatus = "details.status", | eval detailsStatus = 'details.status', or | rename "details.stats" as detailsStatus. Perhaps one of them will work for you.

If this reply helps you, Karma would be appreciated.
