hi @sam4nik,

Assuming device name field is same in both index and lookup. Try this. Sub search with inputlookup command filters the index results. Then lookup command adds additional fields from X1.csv to the results.

index=x1 [|inputlookup X1.csv | field device_field_name | format] | lookup X1.csv device_field_name OUTPUT Location, Category, IP


If this reply helps you, a like would be appreciated.
