Accessing Tags in XQL

L1 Bithead

I can see that tags are exposed on the endpoints dataset in XQL but when I inlcude them in a query they appear (vaguely) as key value pairs thus:


"endpoint tags": [], "server_tags":["IAN"]


The schema though reports tags as being of type string and not an array


I would like to be able to extract just the server tag value(s) and present that in an XQL query, is that possible?

I have this working, but it still returns the value in double quotes. I've no idea if there is a btter way to a cheive thgis nor if it possible to remove the quotes but this works for me for now

dataset = endpoints 
| alter server = json_extract(tags,"$.server_tags")
| alter server = trim(server,"[]")
| fields endpoint_name as Host_Name, agent_version as Version, server as Server_Tag
