"Domain": "SQL",
} ]
"Student": [
{
"name": "EF",
"Domain": "CSE",

Try something like this

index=myindex | rename Settings.Student{}.* as *Student Settings.Employee{}.* as *Employee | eval emp=mvzip(nameEmployee,DomainEmployee,"#") | eval std=mvzip(nameStudent,DomainStudent,"#") | table emp std | mvexpand emp | rex field=emp "(?<nameEmployee>.+)#(?<DomainEmployee>.+)" | mvexpand std | rex field=std "(?<nameStudent>.+)#(?<DomainStudent>.+)" | fields - emp std | foreach *Student [eval <<FIELD>>=if(nameStudent=nameEmployee,<<FIELD>>,null())] | stats values(*Student) as *Student by nameEmployee DomainEmployee
