Struggling with searching for greater/lesser than characters in string


I need to find events containing the < (lesser than) character but I can't escape it properly, backslash seems to be doing nothing.

Any idea?


Backslash should work. You could also try wrapping your value in double quotes.

What's the issue though? Are you getting an error or are you simply not seeing the results you expect? If the latter, are you sure the analyzer for the field you're querying on hasn't stripped characters like <?
