How to accomodate or condition in regex

I have 2 types of error messages that I want to display along with their count. One error has "." at the end and another has "." at the end but has some redundant string surrounded by "<>" which I dont need. Is there a way to accomodate both these in the same regex? Currently I am using below regex with only "." condition and it seems its not working for messages with "<"

Message 1 : 

 

stack_trace : com.abc.xyz.package.ExceptionName: Missing A.

 

 

Message 2: 

 

 

stack_trace : com.abc.xyz.package.ExceptionName: Missing B <abcd> com.

 

 

Query

 

BASE_SEARCH| rex field=_raw "Exception: (?<ExceptionText>[^\.]+)"
| stats count as Count by "ExceptionTest"

 

 

Expected Output

 

Missing A           3

Missing B           4

 

Actual Output

 

Missing A                      3

Missing B <abcd> com           4

Hi @ghostrider,

please try this regex

ExceptionName:\s+(?<message>[^\.\<]+)

that you can test at https://regex101.com/r/Qegzo3/1

Hello @ghostrider ,

You could try this : 

 

BASE_SEARCH
| rex field=_raw "ExceptionName: (?<ExceptionText>[^\.\<]+)"
| stats count as Count by "ExceptionText"

 

Hope it helps!
