If you want to query logs by using exact match of multiple keywords, you can use the LIKE clause.
- Sample log
body_bytes_sent:1061 http_user_agent:Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; ru-RU) AppleWebKit/533.18.1 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/5.0.2 Safari/533.18.5 remote_addr:192.0.2.2 remote_user:vd_yw request_method:DELETE request_uri:/request/path-1/file-5 status:207 time_local:10/Jun/2021:19:10:59
- Query requirement
Query the logs whose http_user_agent field value contains the exact phrase
- Incorrect query statement
"like" and "Gecko"
This query returns the logs whose http_user_agent field value contains the following phrases:
like abc Gecko, or
Gecko abc like.
- Correct query statement
* | Select * where http_user_agent like '%like Gecko%'
The http_user_agent parameter specifies the field based on which the system queries logs.
The LIKE clause complies with the LIKE syntax in standard SQL. The percent sign (%) in a LIKE clause indicates zero or more occurrences of characters. The underscore (_) indicates one occurrence of a character.
