Texting from Splunk - solved!

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: 5555555555@vtext.com

If you have another carrier, reference below:

Alltel @message.alltel.com
AT&T @txt.att.net
ST @txt.att.net
Nextel @messaging.nextel.com
Sprint @messaging.sprintpcs.com
SunCom @tms.suncom.com
T-mobile @tmomail.net
Verizon @vtext.com

Where and how do I need to add AT&T @txt.att.net to Splunk? My provider is AT&T. I do not see any option to add this information to Splunk. Please help.

If you or your users have an iPhone, consider looking at

       http://www.innovato.com

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.

This is on my radar and you saved me a lot of time. I also recommend you do as Jtrucks suggested as people might overlook this since it is unanswerd.
