XQL question command line with " to XQL query

L4 Transporter

Hello dear community, 


is there a way to put the whole command line into the XQL query? As you can see the doublequotes are already set by the command line itself. 

In SQL I know to do it whith extra double quotes ""XYZ"". But how does that work with XQL?

@RFeyertag yes you can. Use an leading '\' escape character.

Sorry, I don't get it. 

How would you type in, if i want to check exactly following string. 


"C:\Windows\System32\hh.exe" C:\Program Files (x86)\ASSA ABLOY\Vision\Vision.chm::/Use_Guest_CheckIn_Steps_Single.htm







Just like @bbarmanroy mentioned in the post you just need to escape the double quotes in the string.


dataset = xdr_data
|filter action_process_image_command_line = "\"C:\Windows\System32\hh.exe\" C:\Program Files (x86)\ASSA ABLOY\Vision\Vision.chm::/Use_Guest_CheckIn_Steps_Single.htm"
|fields action_process_image_command_line
