Getting Data In

Duplicate labels causing conflict when importing Data from CSV for Dropdown Menu

New Member


I am attempting to import data from a CSV file into a dropdown menu. In the CSV there is duplicate entries in the CUS_NAME column, however when I use the DEDUP function I can see in the results that the entries are no longer duplicated. When I put the below search into the drop down search string I get the error message "Duplicate labels causing conflict".

index="MYINDEX" host="MYHOST" source="MYSOURCE.csv" | dedup CUS_NAME

I am using Splunk Enterprise 6.2.2.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask.

Many thanks,

Make sure you are specifying "CUS_NAME" as the <fieldForLabel> and <FieldForValuealue> fields of the drop down. Then, make your populating search this:

    index="MYINDEX" host="MYHOST" source="MYSOURCE.csv" | stats count by CUS_NAME

Stats is much more efficient in removing dedups.
