How to extract three separate values from my sample event into a single field?

Path Finder

Hi,

I have events with the below format:

"phone":{"areaCode":"732","prefix":"986","lineNumber":"0245",

Is there a way we could extract all the above values to a single field called phone as 732-986-0245?

Can someone please help us in this?

Thanks

Just create a calculated field for the sourcetype (under Settings->Fields) and use the eval expression phone.areaCode."-".phone.prefix."-".phone.lineNumber
Make sure you elevate to app or system visibility and the field will show up whenever you search for that sourcetype.
This, of course, assumes that you have valid JSON events and not just the fragment you have shown us...

Try this

... | rex "Code.{3}(?<ac>\d{3})".*\b(?<pre>\d{3})\b.*\b(?<no>\d{4})" | eval phone=ac."-".pre."-".no

Do you have json formatted events and right now you get 3 fields phone.areaCode, phone.prefix and phone.lineNumber OR you just get a field say phone and that field contains the whole string "phone":{"areaCode":"732","prefix":"986","lineNumber":"0245"?
