Remove a character with gsub

Hello there

Im generating new field based on this entry a serial number and a status
34401910175945 ,ON

The with this regular expression
(?<serial_number>.*[0-9])\s(?<my_status>[^,].\w+)

I get

{
  "serial_number": [
    "34401910175945"
  ],
  "my_status": [
    ",ON"
  ]
}

But am not being able to remove the coma ( , ) character, what am I missing?
Thanks

You could use split https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/logstash/current/plugins-filters-mutate.html#plugins-filters-mutate-split

filter {
      mutate {
         split => { "fieldname" => " ," }
      }
    }

Don't include it in the capture group, put it next to the \s preceding the second capture group.

Thanks for your help, now Im getting this

    "my_status": [
          "",
          "ON"

From logstash log I see this

    "my_status" => [
            [0] "",
            [1] "ON"

The coma is not removed should it be?
Can I do something like update => { "my_status" => "%my_status[1]" } ?
Regards

The , you are mentioning is just json notation, so that has to be there :slight_smile:

@philippkahr
You are right, so , back to my question, how can I remove the ( , ) from the field to have something like this?

"my_status": "ON",

My regular expression seems to be bad, Im creating a temporary field like this:

  mutate {
           copy => { "message" => "message_tmp" }
      }

grok {
              match => {
                    "message_tmp" => "(?<serial_number>.*[0-9])\s(?<my_status>[^,].\w+)"

Thank you!
Regards

replace => {
  { "my_status" => "%{my_status[1]}" }
}

So your entire pipeline would be something like this (pseudocode)

 mutate {
           copy => { "message" => "message_tmp" }
      },
mutate {
         split => { "fieldname" => " ," }
      },
replace => {
  { "my_status" => "%{my_status[1]}" }
}

@philippkahr
