REGEX Help to extract USERID

Path Finder

I'm trying to extract the userid field but am not able to get a clean extraction. I've tried several combinations all have different issues and are not exact.

FAILED REGEX Attempts:
^(?:[^[\n][){8}(?P[^]]+)
^(?:[^:\n]
:){7}\s+(?P\w+)
^[^)\n]*)']\s+[\w+:\s+(?P\w+)

a site like http://regexr.com/ is great to test out the extraction

userId:\s(?P<userid>\w+)\]

I argue my regex is more efficient though !!!

I have a section about using regexr in my work wiki I wrote on Splunk. 😉

I'm sure there's more efficient ways to write the expression.

Hello,

How about:

"\[userId:\s(?<userID>[^\]]+)"

I tried with this, and it worked:

|stats count | eval test="[com.charter.care.customer.view.device.backing.deviceStatusFlow.DeviceStatusManager] [tid: [ACTIVE].ExecuteThread: '26' for queue: 'weblogic.kernel.Default (self-tuning)'] [userId: nhorsley] [ecid: a44b71a4-e0b3-420d-9d59-fd890c508729-0024359c,0] [APP: chtrgwy] DM-provisioning-operation = REPROVISION_PHONE_INTERNET Account = 8357190022950* Mac = 001dd6725 AuditUser = CHTRGWY:nhorsley Status = INFO: QTS retry number 2 for order ID 50487161 - Location-JobCode-JobTitle - CC-Louisville Call Center-D713-Cust Rel Coord-Internet/Phone" | rex field=test "\[userId:\s(?<userID>[^\]]+)"

This is a good way of testing regular expressions. Thanks!
