Edit a lookup file in the Splunk App for Lookup File Editing

After you add a lookup file to the Splunk App for Lookup File Editing, you can locate, open, and then edit that lookup file. You can also restore an earlier version of a lookup file using the version history.

To edit a lookup file in the Splunk App for Lookup File Editing, complete the following steps:

  1. On the Lookups page, locate the file you want to edit from the list of imported CSV file and KV store lookups. You can filter the list to help find a particular lookup.
  2. Select the name of the lookup file you want to edit. The file opens in an edit view.
  3. Select any cell in the table to see the editing options. This image shows the lookup we selected from the Lookups tab but in an edit view. The content is displayed like a spreadsheet and can be edited like a spreadsheet. Selecting the table displays a list of available options including Insert a row and Insert a column. In the bottom right of the page a button labeled Save Lookup is highlighted.
  4. Make your changes to the file.
  5. Select Save Lookup.
  6. (Optional) If you want to save a backup for the lookup file, select the toggle switch for Save backup.

    If you have less than 10% of your disk space remaining, you must manage your disk space and create more space to save a backup.

  7. To confirm your changes, select Save lookup.
  8. (Optional) If you made an error or need to view a previous version of the file, select the version you want from the Revert to previous version drop-down list. Then select Save Lookup to restore that version. This image shows the same edit view of the lookup file but with the menu open for Revert to a previous version.

Edit the backup size limit for CSV lookups

To prevent backups from filling up disk storage, you can edit the total backup size limit for each CSV lookup. For example, you can set the backup size limit to 100 MB for a particular CSV lookup, and then you can save two backups of 50 MB each for that respective lookup file. To edit the limit, complete the following steps:

  1. Create a new lookup by selecting New Lookup > Create CSV lookup, or edit an existing lookup by selecting the name of the file on the Lookups page.
  2. Select Edit limit.
  3. Enter the backup limit in MB. If you don't want to set a backup limit, leave the backup limit field empty.
    This image shows the edit view of the backup size limit for a CSV lookup file.
  4. Select Save.

After you save the backup size limit, you can find the new limit listed above the table of that particular lookup file.
