How to edit my eval case statements to get expected results based on multiple conditions and multiple fields?

Path Finder

I am trying to build a search where I can return a status_code based on the conditions of two fields:

<search> 
|eval severity_level=case(severity==0, "indeterminate", severity==1, "Critical", severity==2, "Major", severity==3, "Minor", severity==4, "Warning", severity==5, "Cleared") 
|stats count as Total
|eval status_code = case(Total>=1 AND severity_level==Critical, "105", Total>=1 AND severity_level==Major, "104", Total>=1 AND severity_level==Minor, "103", Total==0, "100")
|table status_code

This seems to work if the Total of the search was 0, upon which the status_code will be returned as 100.

The other status codes will not work even if the conditions are met.

This works:

<search>
|stats count as Total
|eval status_code=case(Total==0, "100",Total==1, "105")
|table status_code

What am I missing?

You're missing the severity_level field in your eval status... statement. The only field available at that point in your search pipeline is the Total field. To get the severity_level, you need it to the stats command in the preview segment. Something like this perhaps ... | stats count as Total latest(severity_level) as severity_level | eval status_code .... This will give you the latest severity_level

This is what I was missing, thanks.

I also found that I had to enclose the values of severity_level in the case statement:

|eval status_code = case(Total>=1 AND severity_level=="Critical", "105", Total>=1 AND severity_level=="Major", "104", Total>=1 AND severity_level=="Minor", "103", Total==0, "100")
