How to add inputlookup and outputlookup in same search

Hi!

I would like to know if it is possible to add outputlookup and inputlookup in same search.
My purpose is to create a table dynamically and use it in other sub searches.

I thought this can be possible by using subsearches but bit struggling with it.

index=hoge
[ sub search
outputlookup
return ""
]
[ | inputlookup xxxxx]

but alsways the inputlookup runs before the outputlookup.

Any suggestions ?

Thanks,
Yu

Subsearches always run before the outer searches, as for the order in which subsearches themselves run I don't think there's a guaranteed order for that.

Please tell us more about exactly what you want to accomplish, with examples.

Found one such example from Splunk Add-on for ServiceNow :

eventtype=snow_cmdb_ci_list | dedup sys_id | fields - _bkt, _cd,_indextime,_kv,_raw,_serial,_si,_sourcetype,_subsecond, punct, index, source, sourcetype | inputlookup append=t cmdb_ci_list_lookup | dedup sys_id | outputlookup cmdb_ci_list_lookup
