Help with Hive Regex extract.

Hi,

i have a firewall log with entries like this..

Mar 12 04:03:01 172.16.3.1 %ASA-6-106100 access-list FW-DATA permitted tcp FW-DATA 172.16.1.4 59289 OUTSIDE 52.87.195.145 22 hit-cnt 1 first hit

i created an external table in hive for this log file and i am trying to use HIVE SQL and regexp_extract to extract column out of this lines by using this regular expression.

([A-Z][a-z]+ \d+\s\d+:\d+:\d+)\s(\d{1,3}\.\d{1,3}\.\d{1,3}\.\d{1,3})\s+(\%ASA-6-106100):\s+(\w+-\w+\s+\w+-\w+)\s+(\w+)\s+(\w+)\s+(\w+-\w+)\/?(\d{1,3}.\d{1,3}.\d{1,3}.\d{1,3})\((\d+)\)\s+->\s+(\w+-?\w+?)\/?(\d{1,3}.\d{1,3}.\d{1,3}.\d{1,3})\((\d+)\)\s+(\w+-\w+\s+\d+\s+\w+\s+\w+)

when i tested this at different sites (like https://regex101.com/) ..it is working fine..breaking this line into many different groups shown below. but when i try to use that in HIVE its not working..any help is appriciated.

@Saikrishna Tarapareddy

Could you help me with your query? Is it throwing an error when you are using it in hive or the data which you were expecting is not replicated by the code?

Hi @Bala Vignesh N V

when I use the following SQL its not returning me anything..i am not getting any error.

select regexp_extract('Mar 12 04:03:01 172.16.3.1 %ASA-6-106100: access-list FW-DATA permitted tcp FW-DATA/172.16.1.4(59289) -> OUTSIDE/52.87.195.145(22) hit-cnt 1 first hit', '([A-Z][a-z]+ \d+\s\d+:\d+:\d+)\s(\d{1,3}\.\d{1,3}\.\d{1,3}\.\d{1,3})\s+(\%ASA-6-106100):\s+(\w+-\w+\s+\w+-\w+)\s+(\w+)\s+(\w+)\s+(\w+-\w+)\/?(\d{1,3}.\d{1,3}.\d{1,3}.\d{1,3})\((\d+)\)\s+->\s+(\w+-?\w+?)\/?(\d{1,3}.\d{1,3}.\d{1,3}.\d{1,3})\((\d+)\)\s+(\w+-\w+\s+\d+\s+\w+\s+\w+)',0)

How do I get my input string broken in to multiple columns based on the regex.?
