I have following lines in logs

1 ADM.ADMX policies
Found ADM/ADMX policies

How do I search to filter only 1 ADM/ADMX policies?

you can't do that, because there is not 1 ADM/ADMX policies

| makeresults
| eval _raw="1 ADM.ADMX policies
Found ADM/ADMX policies"
| multikv noheader=t 
| table _raw
| regex "\d*\sADM\.ADMX\spolicies"

We can't answer that because that's not what you're talking about in the question and comment.
Check the results of regex before saying there is no result of stats.

@srinivas0704 Could you try index=foo | regex _raw="1\s+ADM\.ADMX\spolicies" if you need to match with 1 ADM.ADMX policies literally but if you need to capture string with any digit at the start you can try with index=foo | regex _raw="\d\s+ADM\.ADMX\spolicies"

@sanjeev543 regex _raw="\d\s+ADM\/ADMX\spolicies"| stats count but still count shows as 0

Have you tried index=foo "ADM/ADMX" or index=foo | regex "ADM\/ADMX"?

OK. I misunderstood the question. Try \d\sADM\/ADMX.

There's a contradiction in what you want to find. Is it "1 ADM.ADMX policies" or "1 ADM/ADMX policies"? My latest response will find the latter. This should find the former: \d\sADM\.ADMX policies.
