Working on "snoweventstream" in a subsearch - Any thoughts?

Explorer

Hi guys,

I'm trying to control whenever I have to send an event to ServiceNow or not, and that's what I've done so far.

Basically, I need to check if the query results exceed a threshold. If it does, I need to update a lookup with that value and run a snoweventstream command with severity > 0.

If the result is below the threshold, I need to do the same update in the lookup with that value and run a snoweventstream command with severity = 0.

Have any of you guys already done something similar and do you have some ideas on how I can perform that?

This is basically a draft of what it would be (in a high level):

eval lastStatus=(subsearch inputlookup x.csv | get status where alert_name = something)
MyQuery
if fieldA > 10
then
    if (lastStatus == 0)    
    then append x.csv fieldB, fieldC, 1
    AND eval alerted=(subsearch that eval some fields and trigger snoweventstream command with severity 1)  

else    if (lastStatus == 1)
    then append x.csv fieldB, fieldC, 0
    AND eval alerted=(subsearch that eval some fields and trigger snoweventstream command with severity 0)

Thank you in advance!

you can use service now event management plugin which will not require to use any command like snoweventstream to send events in service now

Yeah I'm already using ServiceNow event management plugin. Actually this is what enables the snoweventstream command. I'm using the command inside the query because by using the trigger action option in the alert configuration will be only allow me to configure the event for when the threshold is met, which is what I have at the moment. I need to have a counterparty, by sending a communication when the result comes back down below the threshold.
Thanks!
