How to use the mvindex command to remove all characters after the second period (.) for a field's values?

Builder

Hello,

I am finding difficulty to use the mvindex command to remove all the characters after the second period (.). Below is the column name Asset_name which has those values:

Asset_Name

s.hal.ews.int
n2323paop-34.storage.ews.int

I want the output to be:

s7050qalv.hal
n2323paop-34.storage

I got it

eval "Asset Names"=mvindex(split('Asset Names',".ews"),0)

What is your current query? Is your sample data a single event with two asset names or two events with one asset name each?

Try this just all by itself:

| gentimes start=-1 | eval Asset_Name="n2323paop-34.storage.ews.int"
| eval "Asset Name"=replace(Asset_Name,"(.+)\.ews.*","\1")
| table "Asset Name" Asset_Name

The 1st line is for setup, the second does the work, and the third shows the two -- before and after.

A simplistic replace might be ok for you -
| eval newAssetName = replace(Asset_Name,".ews.int","")
