Hi @FabioFerreira,

 

You are on the right track using the json_extract function, perhaps there was a syntax error. Here is an example building upon the previous query showing how to extract the TargetUserName property from the JSON object and create a new column with that value using the alter stage:

 

preset = xdr_event_log 
| filter action_evtlog_event_id = 4625
| filter agent_hostname in (dataset = endpoints 
| filter tags contains "CRITICAL"
| fields endpoint_name)
| alter TargetUserName = json_extract(action_evtlog_data_fields, "$.TargetUserName")

 

The TargetUserName property displays the username value wrapped in quotation marks, so if you wanted to take this a step further and remove those, you could use the trim function, using the entire json_extract function as an input like this: 

 

| alter TargetUserName = trim(json_extract(action_evtlog_data_fields, "$.TargetUserName"), "\"")

 

This will remove the quotation marks and give you a new column with just the username value.

 

Regards,

Tim

Hi @FabioFerreira,

 

This can be accomplished by using a nested query (wrapped in parenthesis) in a filter stage. Here is an example of such a query to help you get started:

 

preset = xdr_event_log 
| filter action_evtlog_event_id = 4625
| filter agent_hostname in (dataset = endpoints 
| filter tags contains "CRITICAL"
| fields endpoint_name)

 

 I hope this helps!

Tim

Thank you Tim!

That helped me a lot, now I need to extract TargetUserName from column "action_evtlog_data_fields ", that it is in json format.

I was trying to use json_extract without success.

Hi @timurphy 

 

Thanks, that was perfect.

 

I was trying 

| alter action_evtlog_data_fields = json_extract(action_evtlog_data_fields, "TargetUserName")

 

But your answer solved my problem.

 

| alter TargetUserName = trim(json_extract(action_evtlog_data_fields, "$.TargetUserName"), "\"")

 

Thanks a lot!

 

Regards,

Fabio
