extract with quoted values

Path Finder

In our logs we have keyvalue pairs that looks like this

key1='valuex'
key2='value value val'
keyx=''
keyxx='lksajdf lajsdf'

just the default |extract does a good job but all the values still have the single quotes around them. One thing to remember is that we dont know how many keys and what keys there will be, so i cant hard code them, they are volatile.

i would like to apply this regexp to all the values of my extractions ^'(.*)'$

can i configure this somewhere in my transforms.conf ?

Re: extract with quoted values

Something like this should work:

props.conf:

[mysourcetype]
REPORT-ex = myreport

transforms.conf:

[myreport]
REGEX = ([^=]+)='([^']+)'\s
FORMAT = $1::$2
REPEAT_MATCH = true

This should automatically extract all values and populate keyX fields with them, no matter how many there are.

doesn't work for me ... just using |extract works but all values are still with the single quotes around them .
