Hello, 

Does Splunk supports sound alerts in Enterprise dashboards based on the threshold in the query?

Ex. I have a query where it shows the (statues > 100) or (statues < 100).  If the (statues >= 100), i would like to get a sound alert. I'm displaying these statuses in Trellis Single Value. Please let me know if it's possible to get an alert once it reaches a certain threshold and how would you set it up in Splunk dashboard? Thank you!

@maryamchar  - As @richgalloway  mentioned there is no native support but if you want to you can write a custom JavaScript function that can perform the task.

 

Part of your dashboard XML

        <single>
            <title>Active Users</title>
            <search>
                <query>
                   <your query>
                    | stats count
                </query>
                <done>
                   <set token="tkn_alert_me">$result.count$</set>
                </done>
            </search>
            <option name="field">count</option>
        </single>

 

Your JavaScript Code:

 

require([
    'jquery',
    'splunkjs/mvc',
    'splunkjs/mvc/searchmanager',
    'splunkjs/mvc/simplexml/ready!'
], function ($, mvc, SearchManager) {

    // Defining model tokens
    let submittedTokens = mvc.Components.getInstance('submitted');
    submittedTokens.on("change:tkn_alert_me", function(value){
           if(value>=100){
                  // follow this link to see how to play sound -  https://stackoverflow.com/questions/10105063/how-to-play-a-notification-sound-on-websites
            }
     });
});

I have no idea since I'm only a user, but I hope not.  I don't like noisy computers.
