Create link in an alert

Path Finder

Hi, I have an alert that gets triggered every 10 min if some conditions are true. I want also to add into this alert a link that will redirect me to a report I have made but I want to see this report only if alert gets triggered? Any ideas will be helpful.

You can add the link in the email message as plain text, Splunk will convert it to hyperlink internally and show it it your alert email.

Hi @Rakeshar4u  ,

I've included a link to the dashboard in the body of the alert email, but it appears as plain text rather than a clickable hyperlink. I also tried using <href>, but it still shows as plain text.

Here's my alert configuration:


My Splunk version is 9.2.1.

Any insights would be appreciated.
