Good day!
A question of this nature: I have a Splunk cluster. The alert manager application is installed. There is a script for sending messages to the messenger.

If I understand the question correctly, you need to trigger the alert through your scripts. If this is the case, then you can add the alert action as "Run a Script" and give your script name in the field name. Then you need place the script in any of the location  $SPLUNK_HOME/bin/scripts or $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/<app>/bin/scripts.
