Customize the asset and identity merge process in Splunk Enterprise Security

You can modify the saved searches that perform the asset and identity merge process to perform additional field transformations or data sanitization. Add any operations that you want to change in the merge process to the search before the `output_*` macro.

If you used previous versions of ES, note that the search preview shows you the dynamic custom search that replaces the following correlation searches:

  • Identity - Asset CIDR Matches - Lookup Gen
  • Identity - Asset String Matches - Lookup Gen
  • Identity - Identity Matches - Lookup Gen

Certain modifications to the saved searches are unsupported and could break the merge process or asset and identity correlation.

  • Do not add or delete fields from the output.
  • Do not change the output location to a different lookup table or a KV store collection.
  • Do not replace the `output_*` macros with the outputlookup command.
