Alerting

Alerts: when writing a report what are the important parameters

New Member

When writing a report, please let me know the important parameters and how they should be set without a mistake.

We are triggering alerts through git savedsearches and it further updates saved searches in spunk server. I want to check the validations for the saved searches.conf folder on git. What should the correct format be?

Okay, your question is so broad that probably the only thing that would effectively answer it is an entire several hour course in report writing with splunk. If you have not yet taken the free splunk fundamentals course, please do that immediately.

We have no idea what kind of report you are writing, what kinds of "parameters" you might be referring to, and so on.

Please describe your use case. You are writing a report about...? You are attempting to save the report and cause it to run on a schedule...? You are worried that it might not be set to run with the correct parameters...? What did you try to do, and what actually happened...?
