Getting Data In

Compare SSH users against authorized user list.

New Member

I have a table that shows the usernames logging into to my various servers. I want to compare these results to a list of users I have specified in order to notice any users that should not be accessing certain systems.

Basically, I am looking to that verify usernames are in the "authorized user" array/list.

That can be solved well with a lookup. For example, define a CSV file that contains two columns:


Define an automatic lookup that appends the status column to your search results based on the username. Then look for users that either have no value for status or have a value different from "okay".

You could also do lookups against a database, or join data from a second indexed source - what is best depends on your environment.
