I have this splunk search:

host=app-dev-001 terminating | convert timeformat="%Y-%m-%d" ctime(_time) AS date | sort term_user | rename term_user AS 'Terminated User'

When I run it I get this error:

Error in 'rename' command: Usage: rename [old_name AS/TO/-> new_name]+.

This search works:

host=app-dev-001 terminating | convert timeformat="%Y-%m-%d" ctime(_time) AS date | sort term_user | table term_user

I get results that look like:

Try rename term_user AS "Terminated User". Splunk has different uses for single and double quotes.
