urldecode

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:

http%3A%2F%2Fyourmainserver-city55555.org%2Ffunctions%2Fmain.php%3Fgk%3DGk45MgHJhEYx8bPYvGfiWS7o3KLdfg90%26

can be decoded to:

http://yourmainserver-city55555.org/functions/main.php?gk=Gk45MgHJhEYx8bPYvGfiWS7o3KLdfg90&

Syntax

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

Example

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

http:
| 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.
