Alternatively, you can count the separators, like this

| eval myfield = mvindex(split(_raw), " : "), 2)

Hi @spatt,

please try this regex:

| rex "start\s+:[^:]*:\s+(?<your_field>[^:]*)"

or this one:

| rex field=stream "start\s+:[^:]*:\s+(?<your_field>[^:]*)"

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

Ciao.

Giuseppe
