How do you add a field/column to an existing kvstore?

We have a kvstore that has been used for about a year.

Now we need to add a new field/column to the kvstore, but we can't find any info on how to do this or if it's even possible.

So my question is: is this possible? if so, how?

Or is the only option to create a completely new kvstore?

Hi @snorri,

Add the new field name in transforms.conf and collections.conf under that kv store lookup stanza.
like in transforms.conf add under fields_list comma separated value.
and in collections.conf >> field.fieldname = string/number

hm. I have already done this, also in the lookup definitions. Is it enough to _bump the splunk version or do I have to restart splunk for the changes to take effect?
