Alerting

"View Result" link in alert email is broken. How do I get it to redirect to the proper host?

The view result in email alert doesn’t open because it redirects to splunk .xxxx.com:8000 . If I remove the 8000 then, it would work. How to change this so that it redirects to the proper host?

http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/6.3.2/Admin/Alertactionsconf

alert_actions.conf must be in the local or default directory of the application you are using when you run the report/search that generates the alert.

This should work because when http:// is specified it will take it literally...

 hostname = http://xxxx.com

and if that doesnt work then this most certainly will:

 hostname = http://xxxx.com:80

You can set it this way in the GUI if you have a search head cluster. It will replicate from one search peer to the others. You can set it in the GUI if you dont have search head cluster too.
