Learn more about the Cortex Query Language count aggregate comp function that counts the total number of values for a field in the result set.

comp count(<field>) [as <alias>] by <field_1>,<field_2> [addrawdata = true|false as <target field>]

The count aggregation is a comp function that returns a count of the number of values found for a field, for all records that contain matching values for the fields identified in the by clause.

In addition, you can configure whether the raw data events are displayed by setting addrawdata to either true or false (default), which are used to configure the final comp results. When including raw data events in your query, the query runs for up to 50 fields that you define and displays up to 100 events.

Use count_distinct to retrieve the number of unique values in the result set.


Return a count of all values seen for the actor_process_image_path field for all records that have matching values for their actor_process_image_path and actor_process_command_line values. The query returns a maximum of 100 xdr_data records and includes a raw_data column listing the raw data events used to display the final comp results.
