Alerting

How can we suppress a set of alerts?

Sometimes, especially over the weekends we need to suppress a large set of alerts. Is there a way to do it in bulk? meaning, to suppress a set of alerts and after some time to bring them back.

If possible, organize them in a separate app (all the alerts that you want to disabled/enable). When the weekend comes, just disable the app, Enable the app on Monday.

Thank you @somesoni2 !

If they are already in separate apps, can we also have a savedsearches.conf at $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/system/local with the alerts stanzas with disabled = true. By activating this savedsearches.conf, we can disable all the alerts mentioned in this config file. Will it work?

You can edit the savedsearches.conf or use the REST API to programmatically disable the alerts - http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/8.0.2/RESTREF/RESTsearch#saved.2Fsearches
