Splunk Search

Valid use for datasets


Just now getting into datasets & when I create one.. 5 columns of very useful data & it sure looks like a lookup table.

Is there a way to use it as a look up table? Convert it to a lookup table?

@clintla Dataset Add On's use is to Explore, Analyze and Share data easily (even without worrying about SPL for beginners).

Once data is analyzed you can create a Report to share with others. If you want a lookup to be created you can always use outputlookup command to move the result to lookup file.
