The Select pipe will help you retrieve only the data that you want and will help you to combine data from different sources.

Basic Syntax:

The basic syntax for a Select pipe is as follows:

Stream=stream_name | groupby column_name | select column_name

Here,

  • Stream is Firewall
  • Groupby function allows to organize similar data into groups i.e. groupby destination country.
  • Select function helps you to retrieve records from one or more tables, the records retrieved are known as a result set.

Let's now look at a practical example:

stream=firewall | groupby dstcn |select dstcn

This query will retrieve all fields for each event where the stream is a firewall, select and group it as per the destination country as shown below:
