Hi Everybody,

I want to ask you, how we can add lookup files into Splunk manually? I'm working on a script that can do this, but the problem is when I do it manually, I don't get a result when I search, even with the same file that I add in Splunk Web.
Thank you.

Hi isedrof,

you can do something like this in a script:

echo "foo,boo
a,1
b,2" > /opt/splunk/etc/system/lookups/lookup.csv

and use it like this in Splunk:

| inputlookup lookup.csv

this will be the result:

alt text

Hope this helps ...

cheers, MuS

What do you mean by "manually"? If you mean as a result of a search, then you just add | outputlookup myLookupFileName. If you mean using ftp or DeploymentServer to put a file onto your Indexers, then, again, just put the file somewhere. In either case, you still have to define the lookup file before you can use it by adding an entry in Settings -> Lookups -> Lookup Definitions -> New. You may also have to adjust your permissions.
