regex for extracting word after symbol

New Member

please help me to extract the quoted word
abcd > efgh > "lmn pqr"

I tried with “(?[^>]$)" but while querying like this
|rex field=_raw “word (?[^>]
$)" showing error.

Thanks in advance

I noticed the quotes in your regex are two different characters, the first pair do not match the text. Here is a suggestion that closely matches your regex:

without a named field--->       |rex field=_raw "\"(.+[^>])\"$"
with a named field --->         |rex field=_raw "\"(?<FieldName>.+[^>])\"$"

Hi @deeptha1992,

Try this :

|rex field=_raw “([^>]+[>])+\s?\"(?<YourFieldName>.+)\"$"
