multiline extraction issue

New Member

I'm having problem with a multi-line field extraction which I have been struggling to figure out.

hey from your regex i think you need to extract only Date VM and USERID right?

so can you tell me what is the VM and USERID in your sample event?

in my logs, I have mentioned the VM as VM!, VM@
User as user1 and user2....

while use the above expression, for line 2 , instead of user1, I m getting null%40null..

hey is null%40null is static? i mean there is only null%40null before user in this kind of events?

hey @rraje_rgandhi

I got the workaround for your query!
Try this!

^(?P<Date>[^\|]+)\|\[.*\]\|\w+\|(?P<VM>[^|]+)\|.*((null%40null\|)|(\-\w+\|))(?P<USERID>[^\|]+)

OR

^(?P<Date>[^\|]+)\|\[.*\]\|\w+\|(?P<VM>[^|]+)\|.*\-\w+\|((null%40null\|)|)(?P<USERID>[^\|]+)
