Alerting

run two scripts when triggering alert

Is it possible to run two scripts at the same time?
for example if I type "a.sh, b.sh" in the corresponding line of savedsearch settings window will Splunk execute both?

Hi 0range,

No, this will not work - just tested that.

But you can create a wrapper script in $SPLUNK_HOME/bin/scripts/ which will call those two scripts and assign the wrapper script to be run when the alert hits - as well, just tested that 😉

cheers, MuS

It seems an interesting way to use an external alerting system... but I think it's Splunk's job 😞

Or have Splunk sent out the alert to some other Alerting System which will take care of the all your alerting combinations/conditions ....

What about passing parameters to the wrapping script specifiying the subscripts to be called?

Sure we can do like this, but the number of combinations scares me..)
