Splunk sort class not working with subsearch

New Member

With the below query I'm trying to sort dateTime by descending order but the sorting is not working, could someone please help me to identify the issue in the query .


hostname="alt*" [search "Starting Batch job" AND hostname="alt*" UUID=* | stats values(UUID) as uuid by UUID | fields UUID] | regex "JOB Execution*" |stats values(@timestamp) as dateTime,values(UUID) as uuid,values(message) as message | sort - dateTime | table dateTime, uuid, message

Your stats command as it stands returns a single row with 3 multi-value fields. If you want to be able to sort the dateTime field, you should separate it out into different rows, possibly by moving the values timestamp to a by clause
