How to extract multivalue fields in multiple events from xml data?

Engager

Hello,

I'm trying to extract information from a XML files. The file repeats the following pattern for each IP address.

<IP value="10.10.10.10" name="toto">
  <INFOS>
      <INFO number="6" severity="1">
            <TITLE>test1]></TITLE>
             <LAST_UPDATE><![CDATA[1999-01-01T08:00:00Z]]></LAST_UPDATE>
      </INFO>
      <INFO number="456" severity="12">
            <TITLE>test2</TITLE>
             <LAST_UPDATE><![CDATA[2010-01-01T08:00:00Z]]></LAST_UPDATE>
      </INFO>
      <INFO number="1234" severity="1">
            <TITLE>test3</TITLE>
             <LAST_UPDATE><![CDATA[2012-01-01T08:00:00Z]]></LAST_UPDATE>
      </INFO>
 </INFOS>
</IP>

In the props.conf files, I've added the parameter: KV_mode = xml. So I have the following multivalue fields:

IP.INFOS.INFO{@number}
6
456
1234

IP.INFOS.INFO{@severity}
1
12
1

IP.INFOS.INFO.LAST_UPDATE
1999-01-01T08:00:00Z
2010-01-01T08:00:00Z
2012-01-01T08:00:00Z

I would like to separate the fields in order to have those events:

10.10.10.10  |  6      | 1      | 1999-01-01T08:00:00Z
10.10.10.10  |  456    | 12     | 2010-01-01T08:00:00Z
10.10.10.10  |  1234   | 1      | 2012-01-01T08:00:00Z

I tried to use mvexpand, mvzip, spath, etc.. But I did not succeed.

Is there a way to do it ?

Best regards,

Corentin

Give this a try

Your base search | eval temp=mvzip(mvzip(mvzip('IP.INFOS.INFO.LAST_UPDATE','IP.INFOS.INFO.TITLE',"#"), 'IP.INFOS.INFO{@number}',"#"), 'IP.INFOS.INFO{@severity}',"#") | table IP{@name},IP{@value},temp | mvexpand temp | rex field=temp "(?<LAST_UPDATE>.*)#(?<TITLE>.*)#(?<Number>.*)#(?<Severity>.*)" | rename IP{@name} as IP_Name IP{@value} as IP_Address | fields - IP.* temp
