Remove duplicate values with same data

I am attempting to remove duplicate occurrences from a results table.

What I have
ID 1 NewBusiness $123
ID 1 NewBusiness $123 *
ID 1 Endorsement $156
ID 1 Endorsement $0.00
ID 1 Endorsement $0.00
ID 1 Close $279.00
ID 1 Close $279.00 *

What I would like to get too.
ID 1 NewBusiness $123
ID 1 Endorsement $156
ID 1 Endorsement $0.00
ID 1 Endorsement $0.00
ID 1 Close $279.00

The values marked with * are the duplicates I am trying to remove. The end game is to remove the duplicates for NewBusiness and Close whilst keep duplicates for Endorsement.

The field values are policyNumber (ID 1) / Stage (Close) / Premium ($123)

As you can see from the above it is not possible (at least I don't think it is) to use the dedup command as there is no one item to de duplicate on.

Is there anyway of achieving what I am trying to achieve ?

Cheers.

Try

<your base search>|streamstats count current=t reset_on_change=true by policyNumber Stage|where Stage=="Endorsement" OR count==1

Please refine the by clause fields according to your final requirement

Happy Splunking!

Try like this | dedup policyNumber Stage Premium

But that will also remove the duplicate stage of Endorsement (which I want to keep.

In any policyNumber there should only ever be 1 NewBusiness, 1 Close but there can be multiple endorsements (I I need to keep these)
