errors in custom alert action

Contributor

Hello,

We created a custom alert action as per documentation and try to trigger it.
We get the following errors:

02-19-2020 16:01:38.316 +0100 DEBUG sendmodalert - action=alert_manager - Token value action.splunk2alc=1

Our alect_actions.conf looks as follows:

[splunk2alc]
is_custom = 1
disabled = 0
label = Splunk2ALC
description = Send Alert to Alc
track_alert = 1
ttl         = 600
maxtime     = 5m
icon_path = alert_manager_icon.png
payload_format = xml
alert.execute.cmd = python
alert.execute.cmd.arg.0 = /opt/splunk/etc/apps/mlbso/bin/splunk2alc.py

under the alert.execute.cmd we have tried already quite some combinations, like:

$SPLUNK_HOME$/bin/python
$SPLUNK_HOME/bin/python
/opt/splunk/bin/python

All throw same error.

Any ideas?

Kind Regards,
Kamil

Re: errors in custom alert action

Place python script splunk2alc.py in /opt/splunk/etc/apps/mlbso/bin/ and alert_actions.conf with below configurations in /opt/splunk/etc/apps/mlbso/default.

 [splunk2alc]
 is_custom = 1
 disabled = 0
 label = Splunk2ALC
 description = Send Alert to Alc
 track_alert = 1
 ttl         = 600
 maxtime     = 5m
 icon_path = alert_manager_icon.png
 payload_format = xml
