@splunk_zen, you can try the following, however, I would want to know as to why you have three lookups identities_1, identities_2 and identities_3. I have moved watchlist filter to inputlookup command itself assuming all three lookups have this field.

index=win EventCode=528 OR EventCode=4624 LogonType=2 
    [| inputlookup identities_1 where watchlist = "true" 
    | inputlookup append=true identities_2 where watchlist = "true" 
    | inputlookup append=true identities_3 where watchlist = "true" 
    | rename identity as Account_Name 
    | table Account_Name]

Issue was really on the dumb first
| fields argument

different lookups are non relevant to this but required as we're using the ldapsearch command to fetch ldapoutputs from several domains

Try this-

 index=win EventCode=528 OR EventCode=4624 LogonType=2 
 | fields Account_Name
 [ | inputlookup identities_1
  | inputlookup append=true identities_2
  | inputlookup append=true identities_3
 |  rename identity as Account_Name
 |  fields Account_Name watchlist
 |  where watchlist = "true" | return $Account_Name   
 ]

Unfortunately it doesn't work.
Adding $Account_Name yields 0 results
