Try something like this:

|rex "one\>(?<one>\w+)|two\>(?<two>\w+)"|table one two

The regex should extract what is in the one and two nodes and put them in fields called one and two.

wouldn't you want to use xpath or spath to deal with XML?

I tried, but not sure on it. So I had written a query using rex as below, it returns only error code1 detail1 all the times.

(one = code , two = detail)

InterfaceResponse|
rex "\(?.{2,60})<\/msg:succes" | where success = "false" |
rex "\(?.{2,60})<\/msg:cod" |
rex "\(?.{10,60})<\/msg:cod" |
rex "\(?.{10,60})<\/msg:cod" |
rex "(?.{2,60})<\/msg:detai" |
rex "(?.{10,60})<\/msg:detai" |
rex "(?.{10,60})<\/msg:detai" |
table MessageUUID success errorcode1 errorcode2 errorcode3 detail1 detail2 detail3

when you tried xpath, what did you try? |xpath outfield=one "//msg:XYS/msg:ONE"

You're trying to extract these into one field? Or what are you expecting as an output?
