Splunk Search

Splunk script to update VA report weekly using lookup file

I am running a search job to view Vulnerability results/data. The search runs every week Saturday evening.  

I want to dump the results into a lookup file which will run automatically every saturday and it should replaced the previous weeks  report with new updated results. (Lookup needs to be same) 

For eg 20th March 2021 lookup file should be automatically replaced by results from 27th 2021 march search.

I don't need the old report(20th march) data since it will be outdated and will consume space on my server.

Hi @aferns0804 

If your report is relatively small then go with CSV lookups and following example query would help to create  assuming the search job user having enough rights to run outputlook.

 

<your query> | fields field1, field2, field3, field4... |  outputlookup <your_saturday_report>.csv

 

You can read more about it here - About lookups - Splunk Documentation

An upvote would be appreciated if it helps!

Hi @aferns0804 

Please try this instead of fields command use table.

<your query> | table field1, field2, field3, field4... |  outputlookup <your_saturday_report>.csv

Done, thanks but it is also exporting _raw  and _time events to the outputlookup file. 

I m not sure it is doing that. I don't want _raw events in my outputlookup file
