Hi jawaharas;

Thank you for your reply.
We have 4.7.4 for 'Splunk Enterprise Security' app and 6.6.5 for 'Splunk Enterprise'

And the 'Enable Identity Generation Autoupdate' setting is true already from initial.

But when I set | identity_sources in search the results appeared from identities.csv.

But still the issue existing in Asset Center and Identity Center dashboards in ES, please help me.

Regards;

Checklist:
1. Verify whether you can view the assets.csv and identities.csv lookup table under 'Identity Management' page and they are categorized as asset and identify respectively.
2. Also, these lookup table should be in 'Enabled' state.
3. If it's still not working add the lookup table entry in below macros (Settings->Advanced Search->Macros)
a) assets.csv to asset_sources macro. Add below code to your macro at the beginning

inputlookup append=t assets |

b) identities.csv to identity_sources macro.

inputlookup append=t identities |

Note: Lookup definition should be created for your lookup tables for these code to work.

All the above which you mentioned already existing.

And the issue has been resolved, only I did disable then enable for static_assets and static_identities in Identity Management in ES.

Thank you for your support

identities_expanded.csv lookup is cumulative output of all identities lookup table configured under ESS. This lookup table is populated the repot 'Identity - Identity Matches - Lookup Gen'. So, ideally it should have entries from identies.csv lookup file as as well.

'Identity - Identity Matches - Lookup Gen' - Report's query:
| identity_sources | make_identities | eval iden_mktime_meval(startDate),iden_mktime_meval(endDate),identity=mvsort(identity) | sort 0 +identity | outputlookup output_format=splunk_mv_csv identity_lookup_expanded

Can you explain about the issue you are facing?

The issue which I facing is the Asset Center and Identity Center dashboards in ES displaying results from the default assets and identities lookup table (assets_by_str.csv and identities_expanded.csv) not from the assets and Identity file which I created (assets.csv and identities.csv), I need to display results from (assets.csv and identities.csv) not from (assets_by_str.csv and identities_expanded.csv) how I can obtain that?

and 'Enable Identity Generation Autoupdate' setting already set before.

Make sure you have set below setting as true in 'Configure-->General Settings' configuration page of ESS app.

'Enable Identity Generation Autoupdate'

Because, If true, it permits the Identity Manager to auto-update asset_sources, identity_sources, and generate_identities macros. Also, you can verify the list of lookup table in your identity sources using below macro.

| `identity_sources`

Tip: Use 'Ctrl+Shift+E' (in Windows) to expand the macro and view it's content.
