Why are Notable events in Splunk ES not being triggered?



Greetings! I am attempting to utilize Splunk ES functionality  by using a test index  After creating a correlation search, I added a trigger action to create a notable event on the search head (SH).

Any ideas of how to troubleshoot this, or what might be wrong greatly appreciated.

Hi @AL3Z ,

at first, check if the Correlation Search is enabled and trigger events, you can test this manually running the search in the same time period you configuresd for you Correlation Search.

Then you should check if the action of Notable Creation is correctly configured.

Here goes some silly questions to help debug that.

Is the correlation search enabled? Also check permissions.

Is the search actually producing results to trigger the action?

Usually correlation searches run with a time interval of the last 5min. Is your search producing results on the last 5min?


If this was helpful, some karma would be appreciated.
