Splunk Search

group certain URLs

I have a search that returns events with many different URLs

 

 

index=test URL=*

 

 

I want to obtain a count of events per URL

However some of the URLs are slightly different so I want to group them together

Example of my URL values

/login/
/login/
/api/customer/5542-a44/data
/api/customer/5c77-59w/data
/api/customer/7a88-134/data
/weather/forecast/
/api/savedseach/7775
/api/savedseach/4788
/new/user

What I would like to end up with

URLCOUNT
/login/2
/api/customer//data3

/weather/forecast/

1

/api/savedseach/

2

/new/user

1

 

Im using | stats count by URL
However as mentioned above my issue is with the URLs that have ids or guids in them

You can normalize the url with regular expression, but you will need to account for all of your use cases.  Here's an example regex based on the examples you provided:

| rex mode=sed field=URL "s/\/(customer|savedsearch)\/[^\e\/]+/\/\1\//g"

 

Here's a run anywhere example that shows how it works:

| makeresults
| eval URL="/login/
/login/
/api/customer/5542-a44/data
/api/customer/5c77-59w/data
/api/customer/7a88-134/data
/weather/forecast/
/api/savedsearch/7775
/api/savedsearch/4788
/new/use"
| makemv URL tokenizer="(?<URL>[^\n]+)"
| mvexpand URL
| rex mode=sed field=URL "s/\/(customer|savedsearch)\/[^\e\/]+/\/\1\//g"
| stats count by URL
