How to create a KV store that pulls events from an indexer?

Explorer

Hi,

I am trying to create a KV Store that pulls events from an indexer. It should display the Event, Log Line, Domain, and IP. Additionally, it should have a comment box and name of the person who is adding the comment pulled from the user account making the change. The comment box should also have an audit trail since numerous users are able to input a comment for an event.

Can someone help me with this? How should i approach it? Any documentation that will allow me to do this?

Thanks

Links with details below but kvstores can be appended just like lookup tables. So you just need to create a search like something below

your search | table event,longline,domain,ip | outputlookup yourkvstorename append=true

Really awesome write up on kvstores here.

I am still unable to add a COMMENT TEXT BOX for each event in the table. Also, I need to add a checkbox in front of each event. Please HELP!

This sounds like you are trying to make something like the investigator timeline from Enterprise Security.

Also what you are trying to achieve is not what KV Stores are traditionally used for. Have a look at the Splunk Java SDK. With the java sdk you can write your own dashboards and as it's JS you have a lot of flexibility with the scripting language.
