Hello All,

I have configured an alert with earliest=-24h and head 3000 and i can see from search there are lot of results are populating but I am no alerts are getting generated. Alert threshold is greater than 2 and results populating are 77
I have integrated the alert with splunk. At first I thought it might the integration is broken but I am verifying from here activity->triggered alerts but i do not see anything

I am not sure if this due to the cron and other settings, so here it is

You need to add alert action "Add to Triggered Alerts" to your alert then it'll appear in Activity->Triggered Alerts with severity set in alert action.

It seems the splunk integration was broken because I did not include some text in the message section. All sorted and thanks for your help

What alert actions do you have tied to the alert? How sure are you that it fired but you did not notice? Have you checked the internal logs to verify if it fired?
