copyEvent() Query Function

This makes an extra copy of the event, thus the next step in the pipeline will see both events. This is mostly useful in the parser pipeline.

If you are using this function to copy an event to another repository, the ALLOW_CHANGE_REPO_ON_EVENTS environment variable must be set to true.

Default

Description

type

string

Yes

The value for #type for the copy.

The implied parameter is type.

Examples

We store the event both with the timestamp from the event, but also as a separate stream based on arrival time. This assumes the event has a type that is not arrivaltime.

humio
copyEvent("arrivaltime") | case { #type=arrivaltime | @timestamp:=now() ; * | parseTimestamp(field=ts) }
