Splunk Search

How to edit my search to find late projects (where the due date is yesterday or earlier)?

Explorer

Hello!

I'm trying to do a search for our projects (we use Microsoft Project Online and have Splunk pull the data from the Projects table) which are late. I'm defining late as a project that has a due date of yesterday or earlier and I'm having trouble making the search. So my current search is simply:

index=projectonline | dedup ProjectName | search ProjectStatus=Active |WHERE ProjectPercentCompleted !=100 |

but I'm unsure how to add the WHERE ProjectFinishDate [is before today]. I can clarify further if necessary but any and all help would be most appreciated!

Thank you very much

What is the format of the date in ProjectFinishDate. What you need to do is first convert it to epoch time and use that to compare with today(). Try something like this

 index=projectonline | dedup ProjectName | search ProjectStatus=Active |WHERE ProjectPercentCompleted !=100 | eval ProjectFinishDate_Epoch=strptime(ProjectFinishDate, "%m/%d/%Y %H:%M%:%S") | where ProjectFinishDate_Epoch<relative_time(now(), "@d")

Thank you for your response!

The ProjectFinishDate format is M/D/Y H:M (no seconds) - does that effect how I convert it? Would it look more like:

...eval ProjectFinishDate_Epoch=strptime(ProjectFinishDate, "%m/%d/%Y %H:%M") | where ProjectFinishDate_Epoch < relative_time(now(), "@d")

That seems to make sense, however, no results are produced. Weird.
