Log Message Inspector

By default, when performing non-aggregate Log Search queries, the results are displayed in the Time and Messages column. You can further drill down the results using Show and Hide Fields in the Field Browser.

If you want to view the results with all the parameter field values, you can select all the parameter fields in the Hidden Fields tab, which makes the results page clustered. You can overcome this by using the Log Message Inspector option. Log Message Inspector dock will display an INFO/ERROR to quickly identify the type of each log message using the color-code, raw log message, message time, receipt time, and the parameter values associated with the query.

Filtering the query through Log Message Inspector

While viewing parameter values, you can add any parameter of your choice to the query by clicking on the kebab menu and selecting the Filter selected value option against the field. This narrows down your query to the same tab and avoids opening a new search page, which occurs when you filter the query using the field browser.
