Examples

  • Correct a spelling mistake

    humio
    replace(regex=properties, with=properties)
  • Get the integer part of a number. This example uses regex capturing groups, and stores the replacement in the field b, leaving field a untouched. This is the same as regex("(?<b>\d+)\..*", field=a) using a named capture group.

    humio
    replace("(\d+)\..*", with="$1", field=a, as=b)
  • Truncate a message to 100 characters:

    humio
    replace("^(.{100}).*", with="$1", field=message, as="truncated_message")
