I have data coming into an index that tells me when a load is complete... these files are named *_done.txt

I have data coming into the same index that tells me the counts of errors etc related to the loads.

I want to trigger an alert that contains the errors that occurred in the load but only after the load completes and splunk receives a file with source=*_done.txt.

How can I do this?

You can use this approach too:

| where trigger>0
| map search=“search to trigger”
