importing data to existing splunk kv store using lookup editor causing issues

Communicator

I am trying to bulk edit the KV store lookup by exporting as CSV using lookup editor, once I make changes to the data fields (not modifying _key) and importing the same file using lookup editor causing data to be appended to the existing KV Store and it generating new _key values for the data.
Is there a way to restrict this behavior of lookup editor? @LukeMurphey

There isn't yet. I opened a ticket to add the capability to prevent duplication when the _key already exists. See https://lukemurphey.net/issues/2594
