Splunk Search

How to search iterate through lookup file

chrisfilor

I have an input lookup table with a list of user accounts we are trying to search through.

Instead of doing index=wineventlog EventCode=4624 user=user1 OR user=user2 OR user=user3.....etc

How can I use the lookup table to search on the user field?

As of now, I have this but it is returning no results:

index=wineventlog_ad EventCode=4624 [inputlookup user_list_lookup.csv]

Use lookups as lookups. and make sure the column name is the same as the user field in the data or use user AS userName or whatever the field is.

index=wineventlog_ad EventCode=4624 | lookup user_list_lookup user OUTPUT user as isFound | where isnotnull(isFound)
