I have three indexes. I want to create single table in dashboard panel for the following requirement.

index=indexProvision with field "UserName"
index=indexApp with field "officer"
index=indexTeam with fields "officer" and "team"

e.g
indexProvision has 500 users and indexApp has 150 Users and indexTeam is a master index which has 1000 users.

Question
I want to compare IndexProvision to find Users who are not found in indexApp. The result I am expecting is 350users. Using 350 users (from indexProvision), I want to compare against indexTeam so that the end result is officer and team details for 350 users.

I want to add this query to my panel, so that I can get table showing UserName and Team

Try this

index=indexProvision NOT [search index=indexApp | rename officer as UserName | table UserName] 
| table UserName | rename UserName as officer | join officer [search index=indexTeam | table officer team]

Alternative1 (may be faster)

 index=indexProvision OR index=indexApp OR index=indexTeam | eval officer=coalesce(officer,UserName) | stats values(index) as indexes values(team) as team by officer | where mvcount(indexes)=2 | fields - indexes

Alternative2 (may be faster)

|multisearch [search  index=indexProvision NOT [search index=indexApp | rename officer as UserName | table UserName]| table UserName | rename UserName as officer | eval source="1" ] [search index=indexTeam | table officer, team | eval source="2"] | stats values(source) as source values(team) as team by officer | where mvcount(source)=2 | fields - source

Hi Somesh
I am not getting any response from both alternative1 and for alternative 2, I am getting the following error. I am find now as the first command is doing well and getting response quickly.

Error in 'multisearch' command: Multisearch subsearches may only contain purely streaming operations (subsearch 1 contains a non-streaming command.)
The search job has failed due to an error. You may be able view the job in the Job Inspector.

Could you tell what is the issue you see with 2nd query?

Also,iIn 2nd query, before the where clause, is it returning all 1000 rows and you're getting a multivalued field called indexes?

Brilliant Somesoni2. The first one is working perfectly The second query is not working.
If you think the second one is faster can you please validate the second query
