Splunk - Please verify your commands, it saves time

Hello Everyone!

This post is a bit of a facepalm moment but I fell like it may be important for someone that may have something they cant't figure out.

Sometimes we find a command or a solution to an issue and we dont slow down enought o look.

This happened to me today.

I grabbed a command from a page I have saved in docs and pasted it into the cli and things didn't work

For example(cleaned for security)

This kept happening over and over, why wasn't my command working:

Finally I asked someone with fresh eyes and they said type it manually


Yeah, the first formatted improperly due to copy/paste, check out the "-"

Moral of the story, sometimes its easier to not be fast.

Have a great week!
