Splunk Cloud Scripted Alerts - What can and cannot be done?

New Member

Hello and Good day Splunkers.

I have a bit of a vague question. Does anyone have any information or knowledge to share on Scripted Alerts in Splunk Cloud? Trying to go through the documentation to find out what alert actions are possible and I'm having difficulty making sense of it.

The reason I'm asking is another team has approached us to build a scripted alert for them. So when an alert is triggered it's not just sending an email but splunk also runs a script to download some files through a provided .sh script which appears to be a thread dump web service.

The reason I'm asking so vaguely is to try and gauge what Alert Actions are possible and not possible in Splunk cloud.

Any idea's are appreciated.

Thank you for reading!
