How to get offset value from a hex string "0b590b5900000000263efd95"
say I want 0b printed in my new field "startmessage"


If you want to replace a field with the first two characters of that field then you can use

mutate { gsub => [ "hexValue", "^(..).*", "\1" ] }

If you want to keep the original field then use mutate+add_field to make a copy of the field first.

I did it with regex

tell me syntax to retain the original value to be used further.


You can use mutate+add_field or mutate+copy.
