For various dashboards and whatnot, I have a particular eval that I use quite a bit over a couple of calculated fields that generate the time-zone shifted hour and weekday of a search result. The result of this is then used for filtering, sorting, displays and all sorts of other things.
In several cases, it's something like this:
eval hr=strftime(_time, "%H") |
eval wkday= strftime(_time, "%a") |
eval "Work Time" = case((wkday=="Sat" OR wkday=="Sun" OR (wkday=="Fri" AND hr>=18) OR (wkday=="Mon" AND hr<=5)), "Weekend" , (wkday=="Fri" AND hr<=17 AND hr>=6), "Friday Workday" , (hr>=18 OR hr<=5), "After Hours" , 1=1, "Regular Workday" )
The first two change, sometimes using a calculated field, sometimes using either min() or max() of a time. The last eval is static (and indeed, if I change it somewhere, it should be changed everywhere it is used to stay consistent).
Is there any way to put at least the last eval into a file to be called up like a function? Is there a way to put it into props.conf or transforms.conf to be used like that? Is there an entirely different way to handle this?
