Alerting

How to configure Alert actions to syslog server?

Hi all,

I am using Splunk Enterprise 8.1.

Recently, we had configured alert actions as "Email notification action" and it works fine. Moreover, we would like to send those alert message to SYSLOG server.

The manual said "script alert action is deprecated". Any other way to achieve it?

Thanks.

Thanks for your info!

We didn't get it to work in our platform which runs in version 9.0.5

But we've found another app with the same features which works for us!
Syslog alert action Add-On https://splunkbase.splunk.com/app/6177

It's really easy to use in Alerts or as Adaptive Response Action in Splunk ES.
Create your customized syslog-message using eval syslogmessage = .. in the Search query and mention the syslogmessage field als message param in the app config.

Hi @alexshek,

some time ago (on version 8.1), I used the Syslog Modular Alert App (https://splunkbase.splunk.com/app/4199/) but it isn't certified on version 9.x, you could try if it runs.

Ciao.
