I am trying to create a splunk alert, which sends an email if a key value is missing.

 

host="myhost" sourcetype="access_log" "Key_Word in the access logs'"

Usually i get the log entries every 30 mins, i want to get alerted via an email if "Key_Word in the access logs" is missing from the access logs, can someone guide me on this?

Hi @praneethlekkala,

it's easy:

  • open the app where you want to locate your alert,
  • open search form,
  • run your search, using the time range you want in the alert (e.g. last 30 minutes),
  • click on "Save as" and then "Alert",
  • insert the infos requested in the form:
    • alert title,
    • permissions "Shared in App",
    • scheduled: "Run on cron schedule",
    • check the Time Range,
    • use the correct cron schedule: */30 * * * *
    • Number of results=0
    • Trigger once,
    • throttle (if you want to disable your alert for a period after triggering),
    • Add action:
      • Add to triggered alerts,
      • Send email,
    • Add the infos of the alert email,
    • save it.

Ciao.
