In that case, you would need a separate regex/transform for each field you wish to extract.

What is it you wish to extract from the event or transform it to?

Thank you so much for you response, appreciate it. Actually I would like to extract fields from there, list of the fields are:

TIMESTAMP, USERTYPE, USERID, SYSTEM, EVENTTYPE, EVENTID, SRCADDR, SESSIONID, TAXPERIOD, RETURNCODE, TAXFILERTIN, VARDATA.

Is the sample event exactly how Splunk receives it or has it interpreted by another program.  It looks like XML except the < and > characters are encoded.

Assuming the elements are always in the same order then this regex should do it.

\\u003cEVENTID\\u003e(?<EVENTID>[^\\]+).*?\\u003cEVENTTYPE\\u003e(?<EVENTTYPE>[^\\]+).*?\\u003cSRCADDR\\u003e(?<SRCADDR>[^\\]+).*?\\u003cRETURNCODE\\u003e(?<RETURNCODE>[^\\]+).*?\\u003cSESSIONID\\u003e(?<SESSIONID>[^\\]+).*?\\u003cSYSTEM\\u003e(?<SYSTEM>[^\\]+).*?\\u003cTIMESTAMP\\u003e(?<TIMESTAMP>[^\\]+).*?\\u003cUSERID\\u003e(?<USERID>[^\\]+).*?\\u003cUSERTYPE\\u003e(?<USERTYPE>[^\\]+).*?\\u003cVARDATA\\u003e(?<VARDATA>[^\\]+)

Hello, thank you so much. appreciated and working as expecting if events are in the same order and no missing values are there. But only problem is that there are missing values in some of the events, causing issue with this extraction. Like some events have TRASACTIONCODE field with same structure after RETURNCODE some events are not. Are there any ways we can address those issues?

Did you miss .conf21 Virtual?

Good news! The event's keynotes and many of its breakout sessions are now available online, and still totally FREE!
