Splunk Search

need help with UI based lookup wildcard/CIDR

Builder

I recently noticed that the UI for lookup definitions now has an advanced checkbox. If I select that I get the option to set match_type, which is described as

Match type
Optionally set up non-exact matching of a comma-and-space-delimited field list. Format is (). Available values for match_type are WILDCARD and CIDR.

so I added a wildard match for my lookup field IP to my lookup definition for tools:

match_type=WILDCARD (IP)

(note, I tried CIDR, too, with similar results)

and in the lookup file tools.csv, I had an entry with a *

IP: 10.10.35.*
Tool: Splunk

but when try to use it, I do not get a match:

|makeresults |eval IP="10.10.35.9" | lookup tools IP

This did not return the Tool field, although if I pass it a matching string it does:

|makeresults |eval IP="10.10.35.*" | lookup tools IP

gets me back tool=Splunk

is there something that I am misunderstanding about the UI based lookup wildcard? Something else that I should be doing?

It should be WILDCARD(IP), not WILDCARD (IP). It should also be:

IP,Tool
Splunk,10.10.35.*

Not:

IP: 10.10.35.*
Tool: Splunk

Tried
match_type=WILDCARD(IP)

with the same results. Waited an hour as well, but still same results.

sorry on the csv. I should have written that correctly. Since it was just a lookup table, the data was actually stored correctly as
IP,Tool
Splunk,10.10.35.*

Also tried
Tried
match_type=WILDCARD(IP)
and changing the lookup table to
IP,Tool
Splunk,10.10.35.0/24

with the same results --no lookup match
although
|makeresults |eval IP="10.10.35.0/24" | lookup tools IP
does return a Tool value of Splunk

For now I cheated and re-evaluated the query IP to match the lookup.

First checks the lookup for a full IP match, and then checks for a match on the final octet "wildcarded".

|makeresults |eval IP="10.10.35.9" 
| lookup tools IP 
| eval IP3=IP 
| rex mode=sed field=IP3 "s/(?<IP3>\d{1,3}\.\d{1,3}\.\d{1,3}+\.)\d{1,3}/\1*/g" 
| lookup tools IP as IP3 OUTPUTNEW

OK. Learned where I went wrong on this one.

I actually entered
match_type=WILDCARD(IP)
into the UI.

I actually only needed to enter
WILDCARD(IP)
