splunk way to extract records from a file looking up at the userid

Explorer

Hi All,

I have an issue, say where in have file as below

val1 val2 val3 userid
1 a ! u1
2 b @ u1
3 c # u2
4 d $ u2
5 e % u3
6 f ^ u3
7 g & u1

So I would want to display this file in such a way that when user – u1 logs in he sees only

val1 val2 val3 userid
1 a ! u1
2 b @ u1
7 g & u1

When u2 – logs on he sees only

val1 val2 val3 userid
3 c # u2
4 d $ u2

And the below for u3

val1 val2 val3 userid
5 e % u3
6 f ^ u3

Ive tried the below , but am not able to get it working.

|Inputlookup ipfile.csv |where username = [rest splunkserver=local /services/authentication/current-context|eval username = username |return username]
