Splunk Enterprise Security

SplunkES -Data Enrichment - Asset and Identity Management- How does the content update work?


The changes of the data source are not immediately reflected and some old information remains for several minutes.

How the content updates works? cron ? or Or is each data source combined and returned with each inputlookup reference? 

Or this depend on the environment use.. Clustering?

e.g. whether synchronization between search heads takes time and a time lag exists in the reflection of the results.

You are correct.  Changes to assets and identities do not take effect immediately.  A set of saved search runs periodically to refresh the lists.  You can find the relevant searches by looking for "Asset * - Lookup Gen" and "Identity * - Lookup Gen"
