Asset and identity fields after processing in Splunk Enterprise Security

The following tables describe the fields that exist in the asset and identity lookups after Splunk Enterprise Security finishes processing the source lookup files. These fields are the fields present in the lookups that store merged asset and identity data. See Lookups that store merged asset and identity data in Splunk Enterprise Security.

The tables below list the default asset and identity fields in the KV store collections after the merge process completes. However, take note that it is possible to revise fields from multivalue to single, and tag or untag fields. It is also possible to add custom fields.
