Loads search results from a specified static lookup table.
inputlookup [append=<bool>] [start=<int>] [max=<int>] (<filename> | <tablename>)
- Syntax: <string>
- Description: The name of the lookup file (must end with .csv or .csv.gz). If the lookup does not exist, Splunk will display a warning message (but it won't cause a syntax error).
- Syntax: <string>
- Description: The name of the lookup table as specified by a stanza name in transforms.conf.
- Syntax: append=<bool>
- Description: If set to true, the data from the lookup file is appended to the current set of results rather than replacing it. Defaults to false.
- Syntax max=<int>
- Description: Specify the maximum number of events to be read from the file. Defaults to 1000000000.
- Syntax: start=<int>
- Description: Specify the 0-based offset of the first event to read. If
start=0, it begins with the first event. If
start=4, it begins with the fifth event. Defaults to 0.
Reads in lookup table as specified by a filename (must end with .csv or .csv.gz) or a table name (as specified by a stanza name in transforms.conf). If 'append' is set to true (false by default), the data from the lookup file is appended to the current set of results rathering than replacing it.
Example 1: Read in "usertogroup" lookup table that is defined in transforms.conf.
| inputlookup usertogroup
Example 2: Read in the "usergroup" lookup table lookup table that is defined in transforms.conf and append the fields to any current results.
| inputlookup append=t usertogroup
Example 3: Read in "users.csv" lookup file (under $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/system/lookups or $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/*/lookups).
| inputlookup users.csv
