The Lookup Command to invoke field value lookups. The lookup does not need to be defined in props.conf or transforms.conf for you to use this command, but lookup table you reference must be uploaded to Splunk Enterprise.
This command to manually invoke lookup definitions that exist in
transforms.conf. If you have automatic lookups configured in the
props.conf file, the
lookup command does not use any of those settings. See"Lookup fields from external data sources," in the Knowledge Manager Manual.

-Under Knowledge, click Lookups.
