Splunk Search

Regarding autoextraction of Fields in Splunk



I was able to run search queries in Splunk and the fields were getting automatically extracted in the Interesting Fields and depending upon that we were able to modify queries.

But currently i am able to run the queries and getting results, but the fields are not getting listed under the " Interesting Fields ".

I am not able to figure out the issue, is any settings have changed or not? Please share some thoughts on the same.

If you were able to see the fields before and not now, then most probably it's due to different search mode unless your raw events are changed.

Happy Splunking!


Is that you are running the same query as used before or anything else?

Issue: Autoextraction was not working.

Workaround : Tried extracting the fields using regular expression and was able to extract the same
