Causes Splunk Web to display an icon for each different value in the list of fields that you specify.

The iconify command adds a field named _icon to each event. This field is the hash value for the event. Within Splunk Web, a different icon for each unique value in the field is displayed in the events list. If multiple fields are listed, the UI displays a different icon for each unique combination of the field values.


iconify <field-list>

Required arguments

Syntax: <field>...
Description: Comma or space-delimited list of fields. You cannot specify a wildcard character in the field list.


The iconify command is a distributable streaming command. See Command types.
