Alerting

take SID in an alert

Legend

Hi at all,
I need to use SID as filename in an outputcsv command.
I reached to do this in a normal search

my_search
| ...
| addinfo
| outputcsv [ search * | head 1 | addinfo | eval query="my_alert_".info_sid | fields query | format "" "" "" "" "" "" ] singlefile=1

and I have a file called "mysearch1234567890.12345.csv".

The problem is when I schedule this search in an alert because the output csv is "mysearchscheduleadmin.csv", in other words: running an alerts, instead SID I have the fixed string "scheduleadmin".

Anyone has an idea where to search solution or (best) has a solution to solve the problem?

Thank you in advance.

Bye.
Giuseppe

Just FYI, if you are using search head pooling or search head clustering then outputcsv is not compatible, see reference doc http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/7.0.1/SearchReference/Outputcsv#Distributed_deployments

None of them: it's a single Search Head!
Anyway, my search correctly runs in search mode, there's this strange behavior only running as alert.
Thanks.

One additional information: I found that this problem there's only on a Windows machine, on a Linux machine I have the correct SID.
