To insert hard-code values into SQL Server via Splunk - dbx


Requirement :

Need to INSERT some hard-code values into SQL table using splunk db connect app.

I am trying to use the query:

index = MyIndexName |eval Name="Name1"|eval Age="21"|eval Sex="Male"|eval Phone="0123456789"|dedup Name,Age,Sex,Phone| table Name,Age,Sex,Phone | dboutput type=UPDATE database=MyDatabaseName table=MyTableName notFound=INSERT Name Age Sex Phone

Error :

Error in 'dboutput' command: command="dboutput", Missing key column for SQL update (Usage: dboutput ([dboutput-stanza] | type=[insert|update] database=[database] table=[table] notFound=[ignore|fail|insert]+) )

I have added all the columns as per the table design. Still the error says 'missing columns'.
Please help me in using this 'dboutput' command

You have to specify the key column of the table being updated.

... notFound=INSERT key=Name Name Age Sex Phone
