How to extract json fields from json inside single quotes?

New Member

Hey I am having difficulties trying to extract fields from my splint logs. They are in the format of

’{“field”: “value1”, “field2”: “value2”}’  I’ve tried using spath but it doesn’t seem to work. I think the issue is that the json object is enclosed in single quotes so splunk doesn’t recognise it as json.

One solution is to rex the json out.  Assuming that the sample data you give is _raw:

| rex "'(?<jfield>[^']+)"
| spath input=jfield
