Splunk Search

extracting fields from another field

Explorer

Hi,

We are receiving the event in json format and given the _raw event below. I am trying to extract the fields in search time through props and transforms from a particular field but it is not working

_raw event

[{"command":"gitly-upload-pack tcp://prod-gitly-primary.domain.com:80 {\"repository\":{\"storage_name\":\"default\",\"relative_path\":\"infrastructure/app-config-iam-lint-rules.git\",\"git_object_directory\":\"\",\"git_alternate_object_directories\":[],\"gl_repository\":\"project-139\",\"gl_project_path\":\"infrastructure/app-config-iam-lint-rules\"},\"gl_repository\":\"project-139\",\"gl_project_path\":\"infrastructure/app-config-iam-lint-rules\",\"gl_id\":\"key-id\",\"gl_username\":\"uname\",\"git_config_options\":[],\"git_protocol\":null}","user":"user with id key-7260","pid":6055,"level":"info","msg":"executing git command","time":"2020-02-14T11:23:34+00:00","instance_id":"instanceid","instance_type":"m5.4xlarge","az":"us-east-1b","private_ip":"x.x.x.x","vpc_id":"vpc-id","ami_id":"ami-id","account_id":"12345","vpc":"infra-vpc","log_env":"prod","fluent_added_timestamp":"2020-02-14T11:23:36.397+0000","@timestamp":"2020-02-14T11:23:36.397+0000","SOURCE_REALTIME_TIMESTAMP":"1581679416397075","MESSAGE":"executing git command"}

Below is the value assigned to command field and i am trying to split into multiple fields,

gitly-upload-pack tcp://prod-gitly-primary.domain.com:80 {"repository":{"storage_name":"default","relative_path":"infrastructure/app-config-iam-lint-rules.git","git_object_directory":"","git_alternate_object_directories":[],"gl_repository":"project-139","gl_project_path":"infrastructure/app-config-iam-lint-rules"},"gl_repository":"project-139","gl_project_path":"infrastructure/app-config-iam-lint-rules","gl_id":"key-id","gl_username":"uname","git_config_options":[],"git_protocol":null}

It is extracted as expected through rex search cmd. **searchquery | rex field=command "^(?<git_command>[^\s]+)\s(?<git_url>[^\s]+)\s(?<git_json>.*)" | spath input=git_json**

i am trying to put it through props and transforms but not working

[sourcetype]
REPORT-command = morefields_from_command

[morefields_from_command]
kv_mode = json
SOURCE_KEY = command
REGEX = (?<git_command>\S+)\s(?<git_url>\S+)\s(?<git_json>.*)

my requirement is

git_command = gitly-upload-pack 
git-url = tcp://prod-gitly-primary.domain.com:80
git_json = {"repository":{"storage_name":"default","relative_path":"infrastructure/app-config-iam-lint-rules.git","git_object_directory":"","git_alternate_object_directories":[],"gl_repository":"project-139","gl_project_path":"infrastructure/app-config-iam-lint-rules"},"gl_repository":"project-139","gl_project_path":"infrastructure/app-config-iam-lint-rules","gl_id":"key-id","gl_username":"uname","git_config_options":[],"git_protocol":null}

once this done, then i have again split it from git_json as below

storage_name = default
relative_path=infrastructure/app-config-iam-lint-rules.git
..
..
..
git_protocol= null

I try this props.conf. if _raw is your sample, it is OK.

Hi @martinnepolean,

Try adding this to your props.conf. Include everything, up to "in command". That's part of the code.

[sourcetype]
EXTRACT-morefields = (?<git_command>\S+)\s(?<git_url>\S+)\s(?<git_json>.*) in command

OK. Back to your original method, the documentation for transforms.conf specifies the following format: SOURCE_KEY = field:command. Could you try modifying that?
