Hi NathanBradley,
I noticed for the arrayindex on the new_email field you have it set to 2, which would tell it to match on the third instance of the matched pattern. In my environment for event ID 4720 I only see one instance of the field "User Principle Name", so I would set the index value to 0 unless you are seeing something different for your events. Also as it stands, you are capturing the text "User Principle Name in addition to the value that would be in that field. Try replacing with the logic below.

| alter New_Email = arrayindex(regextract(action_evtlog_message , "User Principal Name:(\t.*)"),0).
