Help with subsearch eval function with where clause

Path Finder

Hi All,

I want help to use where clause in eval command:

below is lookup data:

ID  expense year

1     10          2021

2     20          2020

3     10          2021

4     30          2019

5     20          2020

eval a = sum(expense) by ID, year where ID IN(1,3)

eval b= sum(expense) by ID, year  where ID IN(2,4)

eval c= sum(expense) by ID, year where ID IN(1,2,3,4)  [excluding few ID's from the search]


can someone help me to get this. I tried join to have these values as a subsearch but not able to get it.

Could you please paste the result of the output that you want?

The question doesn't make sense to me, when you say sum(expense) by ID, it means sum(expense) by distinct ID in splunk language and it will always be the value of expense as shown in the input table.

Please tell us the output result in tabular format that you want.

| eval group_a=if(ID IN (1,3),expense,null())
| eval group_b=if(ID IN (2,4),expense,null())
| eval group_c=if(ID IN (1,2,3,4),expense,null())
| stats sum(group_a) as a sum(group_b) as b sum(group_c) as c by year
