Splunk Search

How to get the Indirect relation using Splunk Search ?



I have a data in which i have the employee name and the manager name.

I want to create a search where if someone select a name ( For Ex: John) it should return records where John is Manager Directly or Indirectly .

In below Example if i select John it should return all 3 records, Joy, Adam and Roy because Adam reports to John and Joy and Roy reports to Adam.

If i select Adam, it should only return 2 records, Joy and Roy.

_timeFirstNameManager Name
08th MarchJoyAdam
07th MarchAdamJohn
06th MarchRoyAdam


Can someone please help, how can i do that ?
