Alerting

How to build a cron expression in a Splunk alert to run in CST time?

hi there

What would be the cron expression to run an alert every day at 11:00am CST (Central time)?
or Splunk is already taking the time zone from the operating system?

thanks

The cron schedule will run in the timezone that the user who created it is set in. If the user whom created the alert is set in CST, than the schedule will run in CST.

The cron schedule in Splunk doesn't have option to specify timezone as local (on the splunk instance where you're setting up the cron) will be used. FOr running an alert daily at 11:00 AM, you can use 0 11 * * *.
