using HEC Input I set meta data fields like index, sourcetype, and so on. Can I filter them in a custom Event Breaker Ruleset?
So basically the question is, what is applied first, the Event Breaker Ruleset or Fields?
Hi Mario. Event Breaker are the first thing that is always applied. Adding Fields in the source comes after that. Therefore filtering needs to happen in a pipeline.
and is it possible to filter on `__hecToken` in a custom Event Breaker Ruleset?
To clarify a bit more: This is about HEC input and how to apply custom Event Breaker Ruleset. That said, the filter I reffer to is to filter the data which should use my custom Breaker (see Screenshot). I need this one, because the standard `Max Event Bytes`is to low.
I am not sure if __hecToken is already present at EventBreaker time, I actually doubt it. But to be tested and confirmed.
About using the Event Breaker. What about using a combination of inputID and field match or worst case regex using match, includes, startsWith EndWith etc.?
Thanks a lot.
I will try and let you know, otherwise I will find something in _raw to filter on.
__hecToken works in event breaker filter i have a few setup like that
