Splunk Search

Is there a way to pass field value from search to write kind of an event in the same search using eval command?

Hey Splunkers,

I am not sure if this is possible or not but what i was trying to do is something like passing the values of search in the eval command to basically form a statement or  an event .

So for example consider below search returns multiple users first name, last name and country details.

Now with that field values what i am trying to do is create a eval statement like below-

index=foo source=user_detail

|table first_name  last_name country

|eval statement = My name is "$first_name $ $last_name$ and i come from $country$

|table statement

 

But this is not passing those field values to eval statement, so anyone knows if there is a way we can do this ?

Thanks.

Hi @ak9092,

let me understand: you want to concatenatethree fields value in only one, is it correct?

if this is your need, please try this:

index=foo source=user_detail
| eval statement="My name is ".first_name." ".last_name." and i come from ".country
| table statement

Ciao.
