Bypassing lookup 1000 limit


Hi all,
I am trying to make a correlation between an inventory of assets and vulnerability indexed data.

I am currently using:

| lookup assets.csv vendor, product,version OUTPUT Hostname Delivery | where isnotnull (Delivery)

to get exactly which assets appear in the indexed data and are therefore vulnerable, however there is a limit of 1000 when using lookup files.

By trying to solve the problem, I have indexed the inventory data in "index = assets", how could I get the relation of vulnerable assets with data indexed in two different indexes?

Thanks in advance

Thank you very much for your response, although I have not be able to make it work, it wasn´t grouping data.

I have achieved it differently, I have created a new field in each index with:
| eval CPE = vendor + ":" + product + ":" version

| stats values (index) as index values (Hostname) as Hostname by CPE | where mvcount (index) > 1
| mvexpand Hostname

Path Finder

This is one of my favorite topics: Joining two data sets with the stats command.

A very quick and dirty way to do this with your data could be to try something like this:

index=vulnerability OR index=assets
| stats first(*) as * by vendor, product, version

This will pull your two data sources together, grouped (or joined) by the vendor, product, and version.
