Splunk Search

How to search inside file contents of uploaded events?


Hoping someone can help, reasonably new to Splunk.

I have a number of Splunk events that are uploaded small text files. Is there a way I can search inside these uploaded files explicitly? In my case they are transaction files that may be for sales or refunds. 

So for example I'd like to search though all transaction files for today to get metrics for all sales and refunds.

The in advance.

Thanks Soutamo,

I had been working with one area of our product where events were coming in in json format and were automatically parsed successfully. In this case I just needed to add additional field extraction which was delimited by _ and identified source code writing file structure which gave me everything I needed in addition with the docs suggested above 100% solved. Appreciate your time! Thx
