Equal - case insensitive (eqic)
You can apply this operation either as a Filter or Create column operation:
Compares two strings and returns only the events where both values are exactly the same, ignoring case.
Compares two strings of the same type and creates a Boolean column that shows true when both strings are exactly the same, ignoring case.
Use the Equal (eq, =) operation if you need to discriminate between uppercase and lowercase letters.
How does it work in the search window?
Select Filter / Create column in the search window toolbar, then select the Equal - case insensitive operation. You need to specify two arguments:
|is equal (ignoring case) to (mandatory)||string|
If you use the Create column operation, the data type of the values in the new column is boolean (true or false).
demo.ecommerce.data table, we want to get only the events with method GET. To do it, we will apply a Filter using the Equal - case insensitive operation.
The arguments needed for the filter are:
- Value - method column
- is equal (ignoring case) to - Click the pencil icon and enter get or GET. Since this operation is case insensitive, the filter will return the same results with both values.
Click Filter data and you will see the following result:
Click Create column and follow the same steps to add a new Boolean column that shows true when the method of the event is GET.
How does it work in LINQ?
Use the operator
where... to apply the Filter operation and
as... to apply the Create column operation. These are the valid formats of the Equal - case insensitive operation:
You can copy the following LINQ script and try the above example on the
from demo.ecommerce.data where eqic(method, "get")
And this is the same example using the Create column operation:
from demo.ecommerce.data select eqic(method, "get") as status_code_200_ins
