How to use wildcard in multi fields in lookup table?



I want to use a lookup table as a whitelist for an alert.

1. I created a whitelist.csv lookup table including src, dst, protocol, user, whitelisted

src  |  dst  | protocol  | user | whitelisted | | * | * | true | * | * | * | true

* | * | https | bob | true

2. I created a lookup definition with match type:  WILDCARD(src), WILDCARD(dst), WILDCARD(user), WILDCARD(protocol)

3. Added following line to my search:

| lookup whitelist.csv src user dst protocol

| where isnull(whitelisted)


But is does not work. Do I need to change anything?

hi @Erfan,

This is working for me, make sure your file contains data in the below format. There should not be any space b/w fields and values.
