Macro oddness with inputlookup

I have an odd situation with a macro starting with an inputlookup like this:

 

inputlookup ADcomputerslist
```logic time```
| search Enabled="True"

 

I run it like this:

 

| `adsearchsortingv3`

 

 However it expands like this:

 

| inputlookup ADcomputerslist where Enabled="True" 

 

This doesn't seem right to me, but I am probably doing something wrong.

There's nothing technically wrong with that.  It's not a literal replacement of the macro name with its definition, so that could be considered incorrect, but the change is an optimization that should make the search run faster so that's good.

I don't think you need to escape/triple your backticks around logic time, it should work without it. Can you share your macros.conf with the two macro definitions?

I'd have to file a ticket to get the .conf. 🙂

 

Can't really share the definition on a public forum. If you think it's a bug or something else like that I can file a ticket though
