Splunk Search

How to write the regex and configure transforms.conf to extract multiple values for one field?

Path Finder

Hi,

I am indexing data with events in this format:

Field1:value1|Field1:value2 .....

In my transforms.conf i set the regex to :

REGEX =  (?<_KEY_1>[a-zA-Z]+):(?<_VAL_1>[^|]+)

This only extracts Value1 for Field1 and seems to ignore Value2.

I am a newbie to regex, can someone help me out here ?

Note that the IFX (web interface) does not allow me to extract Value2 to Field1.

Thank you,

Add "MVADD = true" in your transforms.conf. By default Splunk will write results only if the field it's about to write to is empty. When you set MVADD to true, Splunk will instead add the new value to the existing field, and make it multivalued.
