Hi,

I have the input like this :

Name Location


abhay kol,mumbai,kol
murari mumbai,chennai
trid delhi,delhi
xyz haridwar

My output should be like :

Name Location


abhay kol,mumbai
murari mumbai,chennai
trid delhi
xyz haridwar

If any double data is there in Location filed then it should be removed, I want to display only single value !!

Please help !!

Thanks
Abhay

You can do this by turning the Location into a multivalued field, and then using stats values to get only the distinct values for each Name.

<your search here> | eval Location=split(Location,",") | stats values(Location) as Location by Name

This makes a couple assumptions -- each Name value only appears in one row in your search results, and the comma character never makes an appearance in your actual Location values.

my input has some blank value also in the Location field:

Name Location


abhay kol,mumbai,kol
murari mumbai,chennai
trid delhi,delhi
xyz haridwar
abc
mno

my output should be like this :

Name Location
abhay kol,mumbai
murari mumbai,chennai
trid delhi
xyz haridwar
abc
mno

Ok, another off the cuff search.


...| makemv delim="," Location | dedup Location | eval Location =mvjoin(Location ,",") | table Name, Location

or


...| makemv delim="," Location | dedup Location | eval Location=if(Name=Name,mvjoin(Location ,","),Location) | table Name, Location
