How do you store the matching value as a field?

Communicator

Suppose I have a query like:

index=my_index stringA OR stringB OR stringC | table logentry, whatmatched

And for the "whatmatched" field, I would like to have the particular string against my raw data has matched, yielding an output like:

logentry                          | whatmatched
this is message with stringB      | stringB
stringC comes here                | stringC

Is it possible to extract this somehow?

try this

| eval whatmatched = case(like(_raw, "%string1%"), "string1", like(_raw, "%string2%"), "string2", like(_raw, "%string3%"), "string3")
