Hi

I want to search for Text A on a index and find the Source Files and then on these source files search for Text B
so if Text A is found then Search for B and return Source files.

A and B are separate events in the same source files.

Hi athorat3.
let me understand: do you need events where there is TextA and TextB and take the list of source files or do you want to serve events with TextA and then search on the source filenames TextB?
In the first case try:

Index=your_index sourcetype=your_sourcetype TextA TexB 
| stats count by source

in the second case, try:

Index=your_index sourcetype=your_sourcetype TextA 
| fields source 
| search [ search Index=your_index sourcetype=your_sourcetype TexB | rename TextB AS query ] 
| stats count by source 

Bye.

Thank you for replying back.
yes pretty much the second scenario

When Text A is available then search on the sources for text B

SO . if I see : Project Implemented successfully^ . i need to search for "exit Status 1^"

When I do show source for the event( Project Implemented successfully^ ) I see this which has "exit status 1^" at the end of the file.

^2017-06-21T19:27:01Z|||{node=0001f-*********************************************************/returns: Project Implemented successfully^

Hi athorat3.
I understood that you wanted search TextB on the names of source files and not on the events: if you want to search TextB in events it's better to use the first scenario because is quicker.

If instead you want to search not all TextB but only TextB that are at the end of each row, you have to use regex command, something like this:

Index=your_index sourcetype=your_sourcetype "Project Implemented successfully" 
| regex "exit\sstatus\s1$"
| ...
