cat Search Operator

You can use the cat operator to view the contents of a lookup table. Not supported in live dashboards or scheduled searches.


cat path://”<path-to-table>”


  • path-to-table is the path to the lookup table in the Sumo Logic Library.


For example: 

cat path://"/Library/Users/ Users"

To determine the path to a lookup table, highlight the row for the table in the Sumo Logic Library, and select Copy path to clipboard from the three-dot more options menu for the table. 

  If your lookup table is very large, it may take a few minutes to display.

You can export query results in the Messages tab of the search results. Click the gear icon and select an export option.
