Splunk Search

How to use tokens in same search query?

Path Finder

Hello,

I'm trying to pass values of field to other field. Is there a best way to do it?

Query:

index=alerts status=resolved | dedup incident_id|table incident_id user
| lookup incidents incident_id OUTPUTNEW alert, title, owner, status, impact, urgency, external_reference_id|search owner=unassigned |modifyincidents owner="$result.user$"

I'm trying to pass user value to owner.

Hi knalla,
let me understand: $result.user$ token arrives from a dropdown input?
what's "modifyincidents"? it isn't a command.
Anyway, if you want to assign a token's value to a field, you can use the eval command:

index=alerts status=resolved 
| dedup incident_id
|table incident_id user 
| lookup incidents incident_id OUTPUTNEW alert, title, owner, status, impact, urgency, external_reference_id
| search owner=unassigned 
| eval owner="$result.user$"

The table command in the middle of a search it isn't useful, if you want to limit the fields that your search uses, use the fields command.

Bye.
