Alerting

How do you run a script from an alert?

Hi,
I am trying to run a basic script from an alert in /apps/splunk/bin/scripts/TEST_SCRIPT.sh

#!/bin/sh
DATE=`date '+%Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S'`
echo $DATE  >> Date_test.log

I am getting the following output, but the file Date_test.log is not getting bigger. When i run it manually i get output.

Any ideas? I am in Splunk 7.0.3

Hello @robertlynch2020,

I see you are using a relative path (echo ... >> Date_test.log). Try using an absolute path instead.

See Working directories for scripts:

Specify an absolute path whenever a path is needed. If you use relative paths, it is important to remember that they are rooted in the Search and Reporting app's bin folder.
