Search syntax

Free Text

In many cases, you can just enter a free-text query.

/a/path/here sqli -7hShow all SQLI in last 7 hours with this particular path
RUAll recent requests from Russia
cn 500All recent requests from China that had a 500 error
404 requests from an IP that had a 404 error

Let us know if a free-text query did something you didn't expect.

Explicit queries are made through the use of keys and operators. The previous sample queries can be made with keys and operators:

/a/path/here sqli -7hpath:/a/path/here sqli from:-7h
cn 500country:cn httpcode:500
404 ip:


  • All values below can be quoted to allow for spaces.
  • Adding - (minus) before any key negates the operation.
  • Different key names function as an AND operator (from:-1h path:/foo).
  • Multiple keys with the same name function as an OR operator (path:/foo path:/bar should return paths matching either /foo or /bar).
key:=valueequals, alternate syntax
-key:valuenot equals, general negation of all operators
key:!=valuenot equals, alternate syntax
key:>valuegreater-than, integers only
key:>=valueequals or greater-than, integers only
key:<valueless-than, integers only
key:<=valueequals or less-than, integers only
key:value1..value2in range between value1 and value2, integers only. For time see from and until
key:~valuesearch on the field with the terms provided


Time ranges can be specified in a number of ways using the from and until keys.

Queries on the Requests page of the console are limited to a maximum time range of 7 days. Queries greater than a 7 day period will not yield any results. For example, if you wanted to see results from 2 weeks ago, your query would need to use from:-21d until:-14d, which would be a 7 day window. A query of just from:-21d would not yield any results as that would be a 21 day window.

  • from:-5h (until now)
  • from:-5h until:-4h (one hour range)

Absolute time

Absolute time is also allowed using

  • Unix UTC Seconds Since Epoch
  • Java/JavaScript UTC Milliseconds since Epoch
  • ISO Date format YYYYMMDD

Example Absolute Time: Unix UTC Seconds

  • from:141384000 (until now)
  • from:141384000 until:1413844691

Example Absolute Time: Java/JavaScript Milliseconds UTC

  • from:141384000000 (until now)
  • from:141384000000 until:1413844691000

Example Absolute Date: YYYYMMDD

  • from:20141031 (until now)
  • from:20141031 until:20141225

You can also mix and match time formats:

  • from:20141031 until:-1h
