select query based on unique id

New Member

Hi,
I have a log where the, app logs the various steps for a unique opertaion id (id below) ->
......
ts=1318861839975,name=stepOne,type=typeOne,id=a30a2286-1318861839810
ts=1318861845825,name=stepTwo,type=typeOne,id=a30a2286-1318861839810
......

It is possible that the stepTwo is not logged in case of some failure or there may be more failure steps (say stepThree), which we want to discard.
How can I do a select query, so that only the entries(id) which have both the steps (stepOne and stepTwo) logged, are displayed ?

Use transaction to combine events with the same id, then search for transactions that have both the values "stepOne" and "stepTwo" in the name field.

... | transaction id | search name="stepOne" AND name="stepTwo"
