By default, the command xml-escapes the text of events and copies them to the _xml field. If usexml=false,
outputtext simply copies the text of events to the _xml field.
outputtext is a reporting command, the command will pull all events to the search head and cause the output to show in the statistics UI if used in the web interface.
- Syntax: usexml=<bool>
- Description: If usexml is set to true (the default), the copy of the _raw field in _xml is xml escaped. If usexml is set to false, the _xml field is an exact copy of _raw.
Output the "_raw" field of your current search into "_xml".
