How make a table with key and value columns and change a field's name?

Explorer

The table we want to make looks something like this:

---------- key | value --------

someName | someValue

someName1 | someValue1

where someName is a field name and someValue is a value of the field we got from our log file.
We're not sure if there is a way to insert a someName text into the table to display. Is this possible?

If you want to add a line with a fake events do
` | table key value | append [ |stats count | eval key="someName" | eval value="someValue" | table key value ] | sort -key

if this is just a presentation request.
try

<mysearch> | stats values(myfield) by myotherfield

or it you already have your data , try to rotate it.
<mysearch> | table key value | transpose

Hi @momori

If someName is already a field name in your events from your search, you might find the rename command useful. Have you tried this option yet?

using rename in conjunction with the tranpose from the above answer worked well. Thank you for your help

If my understanding is correct, are you trying to get all the field names and corresponding value(s) from your log? If yes, you can use command called "fieldsummary" which will give you list of fields in your log. Check this out
