Splunk Search

How do you search logs for a letter at a specific position?

I'm very new to Splunk and need help with a search.

I want to perform a search to show me the results where the 5th letter of the server name has the letter "p". Is this possible?

Thank you

@arthurva Suppose your index is test and your field is server_name.

index=test| eval x = substr(server_name,5,1)| where x="p"

Hi @arthurva

Give a try

| eval test="ABCDPTD" 
| regex test="^.{4,4}[p|P]"
