Alerting

Splunk Cloud Triggered Alerts not working

New Member

I am trying to get triggered alerts working in my Splunk Cloud instance but no scheduled searches seem to be working. I see the error:
ERROR SavedSearchAdminHandler - Search scheduler has not started yet

Can someone provide documentation on how to start the scheduler in Splunk Cloud? Thanks.

The problem was that SplunkLightForwarder was turned on. Turning this on turns off the scheduler, so that's why I saw the message of it being turned off. To fix this I disabled the SplunkLightForwarder and then restarted splunk.

great find!
This is very tricky to find out when the lightweight forwarder app has been turned on.
