Splunk Search

Can you have cascading automatic lookups?

Path Finder

In some of my sourcetypes, I am using automatic CSV lookups to add some data to Splunk (as explained in the docs here).

However, can I have a second automatic lookup over data that was already added with an automatic lookup? I am using the same method as above but it looks like it's not working.

Just to clarify, as an example, suppose I have the UserID field, I then have an automatic lookup that adds the user's birth town to Splunk, can I now have an automatic lookup that adds the country of birth starting from the birth town?

Yes, this is possible. You need to name your lookups appropriately, because they are evaluated in alphabetical order. See here for an older question about this.
