Alerting

Is the alert script capability for alert actions restricted to the admin user or is there a setting I can change?

Hello,

I have a python script as an alert action.
I could not make it work until I changed the owner of the alert to admin. Even when the owner had the admin role, the script was not called.
In the scheduler.log, I see alert_actions="" when the user is not the admin user.
While I see, alert_actions="script" when the user is the admin user.

Is this alert script capability restricted to the admin user or are there any other settings I can change?

Thanks,

Sorry I had one conflicted line remaining in the first alarm (alert_condition = search count = 1). User rights had nothing to do with it.
