There are multiple ip addresses in a raw event line and I only need the first one
How can I achieve that?

192.168.0.1 -192.168.0.5 gcgh 192.168.0.7gcgh 192.168.0.7 gcgh 192.168.0.8 gcgh 192.168.0.9 gcgh

Something like that:

([0-9]{1,3}\.[0-9]{1,3}\.[0-9]{1,3}\.[0-9]{1,3}\/*\d*).+

Adding context for anyone coming here for answers.

Assuming msg is the field name, the following would result in the first IP found

| makeresults  
| eval msg = "192.128.22.2 202.134.55.89" 
| rex field=msg "(?<firstip>\d{1,3}\.\d{1,3}\.\d{1,3}\.\d{1,3})"

If additional IPs needed to be extracted then a max_match = # could be added to the rex line.
