Splunk PCRE - Can I use flags?

Builder

Hey everyone, this is hopefully a simple question. When we are doing extractions at search time with transforms.conf, can we use flags? For instance, some of our sources have a headerline which we will extract at search time, but the last item on the line is the start of a key value pair which can continue on for N lines. So, using the /<MYREGEXHERE/s would be really useful.

Yes, you can use flags, using syntax like:

For example "(?i)Msarro" would match your nick, as it would be case insensitive.
