This is not a question, but I wanted to share...
If you are running Enterprise Splunk and would like an alert sent via text...
Create the search, have Splunk send an email. I un-check the send results (mixed results. text might not come through).
The email address will vary depending on who your carrier is:
I have verizon, so my to would be: firstname.lastname@example.org
If you have another carrier, reference below:
If you or your users have an iPhone, consider looking at
It's Splunk Alerting on your iPhone. Available now. It's not an official Splunk product, but a really useful skunkworks project.
Alternatively , if you want a solution that can SMS/MMS can anyone/anywhere you could write a custom alert script that , as 1 such example , uses Twilio , to send your SMS/MMS. This isn't free however , you'd need a Twilio account.
You could even integrate Twilio Phone Calls for all sorts of exciting alerting integration use cases 🙂 ie: an alert that fires and an automated call to you phone and reads you the alert description.
