Overwrite asset or identity data with entitymerge in Splunk Enterprise Security

After you add assets and identities to Splunk Enterprise Security, you can use the entitymerge command to merge or overwrite asset or identity data based on matched foreign keys. See Add asset and identity data to Splunk Enterprise Security.

Description

Use the entitymerge command to merge or overwrite asset or identity data based on matched foreign keys. Primarily, you use it by default in the Search Preview tab of Asset and Identity Management. You can use it manually for debugging. See Search Preview.

Syntax

entitymerge <entitymerge-target>

Required arguments

entitymerge-target

Syntax: [asset|identity]
Description: Required target of the entitymerge command.

Example

You can see examples of the entitymerge command in the Search Preview tab of Asset and Identity Management.

One example is the search preview for asset_lookup_by_str, the asset table that uses string matching to enrich events:

| `add_entity_source("demo_asset_lookup","demo_assets")` | `add_entity_source("frothly_assets_2018","frothly_assets_2018")` | `add_entity_source("seckit_idm_assets_aws_ec2","frothly_aws_assets_2018")` | `add_entity_source("simple_asset_lookup","static_assets")` | table "_source","cim_entity_zone","bunit","category","city","country","dns","ip","is_expected","lat","long","mac","nt_host","owner","pci_domain","priority","requires_av","should_timesync","should_update" | `make_ip_str` | inputlookup append=T "asset_lookup_by_str" | entitymerge "asset"
