The 'advanced query language' or Dynatrace Query Language is very weak it seems:
When trying to define a log event pattern detection a simple expression like "EXIT_CODE=6" is not possible. This pattern would match anything that contains EXIT_CODE the '=' is ignored.
How would one search for exactly this string?
Solved! Go to Solution.
both "EXIT_CODE=6" and EXIT_CODE=6
will match EXIT_CODE=6 but will not match EXIT_CODE
However EXIT_CODE = 6
will match lines that contain EXIT_CODE and = and 6 on any position in the log line (entry).
We just doublechecked the above behavior, if you observe different results - please open a support call.
