In what way is it not working?

You are setting key_field to the key from the original record - which is what you would do if you are trying to update an existing row in the table, but you actually want to append a new row. Remove the key_field=key, but keep the append=true

Are you talking about lookup files or kv stores?

Can you describe what is not 'working' and give an example of what you see when you try the commands

| inputlookup table_a
      |search name="A" |eval rating=5 ,comment="Execellent" key=_key| outputlookup  append=true  key_field=key table_a

-----------------------------

| inputlookup table_a

You are not doing what I suggested in my first response 

Remove the key_field=_key

You are explicitly telling it to update the SAME row in KV store
