Sumo Logic


The URL Decode (urldecode) operator decodes a URL you include in a query, returning the decoded (unescaped) URL string.

For example, a URL that looks like this:

can be decoded to:


  • urldecode(<url_field>) [as <field>]
  • urldecode("<url string>") as <field>


Let's say you'd like to decode URLs connecting to your firewall. Running a query like:

| parse "Connecting to firewall at URL: *" as url
| urldecode(url) as decoded

returns results of each URL, both in the encoded and decoded state, allowing you to run additional queries on the parsed, decoded URLs.
