Sumo Logic


The trim operator eliminates leading and trailing spaces from a string field.


  • trim(<field>) as <field>
  • trim(" <string expression> ") as <field>


Take the string value " Hello World  ". To remove the leading and trailing spaces you would do the following:

| trim(" Hello World  ") as greeting

This would return a field named greeting with a new value of "Hello World".
