Create an alert based on SQL query results from DB Input

New Member

Hi ,
I'm new to Splunk , I'm using DB connect V2 . Want to create an alert based on a query in DB Input , I have a field called 'Duration_Hrs' .
I want to trigger email chain if duration exceeds over 24 hours . What are detailed steps I need to follow?

You'll first want to construct a search that returns results that you'd like to be alerted on:

example (assuming you're indexing the data from your DB, and you'd like all fields present in your alert): index=my_db_index Duration_Hrs>24 | table *

Then: Save As -> Alert

There's a dozen or so fields you'll want to fill out within the "Save As Alert" box. I'd suggest reading the following : . There are time windows and intervals you'll want to set to capture data in your required manner.

If we are directly running the query against DB and not indexing data, will it send alert? I am trying to set up alert for this but it is not sending any data content . Only email with "Search Complete" is coming.
I tried with sendresult=true inline=true sendcsv=true also.
