Hi ,

I have used '$result.message$' to print a specific field in the log over the email.But this reference prints the message 2 times.I have totally 11 occurrences for the search string at the same time.I have triggered the alert after 10th occurrence.I just want to print this message only once,Is there any way?

Hi @raghavprakasam,

I see multiple solutions for your problems :

1- You can use the dedup command to drop the number of results to one.
2- You can use the stats count by youreventcommand and change the condition to trigger on the count >10 instead of counting the events with the alert.
3- You can leverage the alert throttle to reduce the total number of message you receive.

Let me know the query you are using and I can help you fix it to reduce the number of events if you're not able to with the above.

Cheers,
David
