Splunk Search

Regex help Required

Hi All,

We are planning to ingest the SQL login success and failure logs into Splunk. So  in the logs there are lot of events but we want to ingest only the "Login succeeded for user" and "Login failed for user" information alone. So kindly help to provide the regex for the same.

Sample events looks like below:

2020-08-10 06:00:00.89 Logon Login succeeded for user 'ad\SQL_abcde123'. Connection made using Windows authentication. [CLIENT: <local machine>]
2020-08-10 06:00:01.59 Logon Login succeeded for user 'xyz'. Connection made using SQL Server authentication. [CLIENT: xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx]
2019-08-10 05:00:01.59 Logon Login failed for user ''. Reason: An attempt to login using SQL authentication failed. Server is configured for Windows authentication only. [CLIENT: xxx.xxx.xx.xxx]

Thanks for your swift response. So i need to write in props.conf (or) should i need to include the same in inputs.conf along with index and sourcetype information.

Or Whether do we need to have both props and transforms in place as well?

Have mentioned in the input.conf and ingested the logs into Splunk. But still i can see other events also getting ingested as well. I just want to see the succeeded and failed events alone. so let me know how to fix it.


[monitor://D:\Server Location]
whitelist = (succeeded|failed) for user
sourcetype = xyz
index = abc
crcSalt = <SOURCE>
disabled = 0


So kindly help on this request.
