Append search filtering in the second search by a field of the first one

New Member

Hello,

I'm trying to append a search to my principal search by filtering the second search using a field of the first one. Let me explain myself better.

My first search has different fields:index=machines environment=production | table ip, domain-name, last-update, application

ip,       domain-name,   last-update,     application
10.0.0.1, machine_A,     1/1/2018,        mysql
10.0.0.2, machine_B,     1/2/2018,        apache2
10.1.1.4, machine _4000, 4/5/2018,        smb-server

My second search has other fields: index=admin environment=administrator | table administrator, os-system, domain-name, last-connection

administrator, os-system,   domain-name,   last-connection
admin1, linux, machineA, 1/1/2017
admin2, linux, machine
B, 1/2/2017
admin3, windows, machine _4000, 4/5/2017

I would like to merge both table using the domain-name of the first search. I would like to use the field domain-name of the first search to lookup on the second one for it's administrator and the OS so the result would look like this:

ip,       domain-name,   last-update,     application, administrator, os-system
10.0.0.1, machineA, 1/1/2018, mysql admin1 linux
10.0.0.2, machine
B, 1/2/2018, apache2 admin2 linux
10.1.1.4, machine _4000, 4/5/2018, smb-server admin3 windows

I've tried using this search:

index=main environment=production | rename domain-name as domain-name1 | append [search index=admin environment=administrator | rename domain-name as domain-name2 ] | table ip, domain-name, last-update, application, administrator, os-system | where domain-name1 = domain-name2

I have also tried using join and other weird things like appendcols. It didn't work. The fields of the second search doesn't appear.

Can anyone help me please?

Thank you very much in advance!! 😄

Try this:

index=machines environment=production | join domain-name
[ search index=admin environment=administrator
| dedup domain-name]
