Email alert - search status failed - no email alert

New Member

I wanted to create an email alert when no data is tranfered to splunk, so by 0 results. But the search by alert always fails. The status always shows failed instead of done and I have no idea why. That might be the problem why I don't get any email alert.

You are going to laugh at this (at least I did when it bit me). You have your search set to digest_mode = false/0 which from the GUI shows Trigger as Once for each result. How many results do you have when your search has 0 results? Exactly. So change digest_mode = true/1 which from the GUI shows Trigger as Once.
