Getting Data In

How do you identify keywords from a .CSV and report them?

Explorer

Hi all,

I'm a bit of Splunk newbie, please bear with me! Our web filtering software is currently forwarding events to Splunk and works well. I'd really like to achieve the title, but I'm not well versed in SPL yet, so I'm looking for some help!

I have a list of keywords in a CSV file; I'd like Splunk to identify those keywords in our web filtering events (separate data source). For example, If I have the word "HELLO" in my CSV, or if an event (URL) contains it — https://somewebsite.com/hi/88HELLO88 — I'd like Splunk to report this to me.

Could someone please give me some guidance on this? I'd really appreciate it!

Thank you!

Try a subsearch like this:

index=foo [ | inputlookup keywords.csv | eval url="*".keyword."*" | fields url | format ] | ...

It should produce the equivalent of index=foo (url=*keyword1* OR url=*keyword2* OR...).
