I am trying to extract an ID from a search and append the results using the extracted ID.
Search: host="hostname" 32351
<190>Aug 15 11:28:02 hostname sshd: User child is on pid 32353
Now I would like to append the entries including the child pid, e.g.
Search: host="hostname" 32351 OR 32353 without having to type "OR 32353".
Here, Splunk adds all entries with all child pid's and not only those from the main search:
host="hostname" pid=32351 | append [search host="hostname" | fields + childpid]
So I am probably missing something before append. I hope it is enough information.
If you have the field extractions for
childpid configured already, you could simply get the children of a pid by
host=hostname | stats values(childpid) by pid
Hmm, not 100% sure I follow you, but...
host=hostname pid=12345 OR [search host=hostname pid=12345 | rename childpid as pid | fields + pid]
..something like this might work.
Hope this helps,
At least it makes a correct connection, but I need the complete logentries.
What I basically need is:
SELECT * FROM sshd a, internal-sftp b WHERE a.pid="1000" AND a.childpid = b.pid;
