Splunk Search

How to display the complete source without ...

The results of my queries in Splunk are truncated ie, it only shows:

source =/data/logs/sdf/sdfdsfds/f/sdf/dsf/dsf/dsf/dsf/d/fsd/fd/sf/sdf/sd/fsd/f/sdf/sd/fs/dfggd/f…

when I instead want to see the full log name

source =/data/logs/sdf/sdfdsfds/f/sdf/dsf/dsf/dsf/dsf/d/fsd/fd/sf/sdf/sd/fsd/f/sdf/sd/fs/dfggd/fsd/fs/ftest.log

Can it be configured in Splunk to expand the source field to show the full field value by default?

FYI it seems like the source field has a max length of 90 characters including the 3 dots.

Thanks in advance.

You have not told us where you are seeing your data.
1: Is it on the events tab as a selected field?
2: Is it on the statistics tab as a value in a column?
3: Is it on the visualization tab; if so, what visualization are you using?

I will assume the problem is #1 and the solution is to add this to move to #2 which should not have this problem:

... | table *

If you ask questions better, you will get better answers.

Thanks for the reply. And yes, I was talking about the event tab. And the scenario is that when I do a simple search like "index=abc". you can see the events in the events tab with ... as part of the source when it is longer than 90 characters. I wanted to know if it is possible to configure Splunk to simply show the complete values of the soruce field in the normal search result without doing anything like table * to alter how the results are displayed.
Based on your reply, I take it the answer is no. If this is not the case and in fact there is a way to do it, please do let me know.
Thanks.

I am unaware of any way to control this, but that is not to say it is impossible. I would raise a support case with Splunk and ask them to add this as a feature and they will tell you if there is some arcane setting somewhere (unlikely).
