Splunk - Please verify your commands, it saves time
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.

Have a great week!
