how to loop through json array based on expression and create counter

Engager

i'm hardcoding some data like names, where i will pass in a token in the future, to create a simple example of what i'm trying to achieve. I want to loop through all values, which has objects containing the data. Each field i loop through, i want to write an if statement to see if it matches what i'm expecting, if so increment the counter, else leave it the same. Here is my data and what i have so far, weird part is the match or even == doesn't work for me here. It should be at least 2 for sum, but nameTotal should have gotten that right at least? If i remove the stats (cause it loses my nameTotal field, nameTotal is always 0 meaning my if statement's never was true which means '<>' isn't right?, not sure what the variable is that i'm looking for from it.

index=myIndex latest=+5h "extraFields{}.aimId"="innersource" "extraFields{}.prData.prResponse.values{}.author.user.name"="f401950"
| eval nameTotal= 0
| foreach "extraFields{}.prData.prResponse.values{}.author.user.name"
[eval names=if(match('<<FIELD>>', "f401950"), nameTotal+1, nameTotal)]
| stats sum(names) as totalPrs
| table totalPrs, nameTotal

Results:
totalPrs | nameTotal
1 |

| spath path=extraFields{}.prData.prResponse.values{}.author.user output=user
| stats count by user
| spath input=user

I see, how about this?

thanks! that worked really well!, is there a way i can append more columns based on a subsearch? cause i know stats loses my fields if it's not included in it. I don't want to add it as part of the "by" because it'll throw the data off. I just wanted to give more meta data based on the name, like gender, etc. Here's a snippet of what i was trying to achieve. I want to add name + email as part of the table's results, without modifying the results.

index=myIndex latest=+5h "extraFields{}.aimId"="innersource"  "extraFields{}.prData.prResponse.values{}.author.user.name"="*" 
| spath path=extraFields{}.prData.prResponse.values{}.author.user.name output=employeeId
| spath path=extraFields{}.prData.prResponse.values{}.author.user.displayName output=name
| spath path=extraFields{}.prData.prResponse.values{}.author.user.emailAddress output=email
| stats count by employeeId, name, email
| sort -count
