So, you want an answer asap 😉
Your regex is pretty easy, you're looking for everything after the last

I need one more help. I have a pattern ABCDEF**** in my logs which are getting indexed on Splunk . I need to put that pattern in an field which i want to display in table along with job, How can i do that ?
Add the field called source to your table..
... | table source , myfield1, myfield2, myfieldN
Uppsss, my bad. looks like I got the additional question wrong 😉
Okay, instead of asking for more help; Why don't you read the docs about the
field extractor http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/6.2.3/Knowledge/ExtractfieldsinteractivelywithIFX and learn how to use it. It helps you to get anything out of your events into fields, which then can be used in any further search within the same app. Make your life much easier 😉
I am getting error while pasting this regex after my search. Error is Error in 'SearchOperator:regex': Usage: regex <field> (=|!=) <regex>.
My base search is index = abc host = "xyz"
When i have put it like index = abc host = "xyz" |regex field=source "(?<job>[^\/]*)$" | table job it gave me above error. Please help
Well do you have a field called source? Try
rex instead of
regex and if it's still not working try this:
index=abc host="xyz" |rex "(?<job>[^/]*)$" | table job
thanks alot Mus. It works perfectly.
