Why can't I use tokens ($result.host$) in my custom alert

Explorer

The custom alert is build with the "Splunk Add-On Builder". The alert is calling a custom command which is sending a message to the central event management. I want to use the $result.host$ token in order to create alerts for every host in the result.

savedsearches.conf

[send2cemtest]
action.send2cem = 1
action.send2cem.param.client = testclient
action.send2cem.param.msg = testmsg
action.send2cem.param.sender = $result.host$
action.send2cem.param.workid = testworkid
alert.digest_mode = 0
alert.expires = 24m
alert.suppress = 0
alert.track = 0
counttype = number of events
cron_schedule = */1 * * * *
enableSched = 1
quantity = 0
relation = greater than
search = index=_internal | head 2

alert_actions.conf

[send2cem]
description = Splunk CEM koppeling
label = CEM koppeling
payload_format = json
is_custom = 1
icon_path = alert_send2cem.png
param.workid =
param.sender =
param.client =
param.msg =
param.severity = warning

command = send2cem $action.send2cem.param.severity$ $action.send2cem.param.client$ $action.send2cem.param.sender$ $action.send2cem.param.workid$ $action.send2cem.param.msg$

Does anyone has some suggestions, I tried several things which found on answers but nothing worked and I'm pretty stuck at the moment.

Builder

I believe you need to have the host field called out in your search. The search you have under send2cemtest is just this:

index=_internal | head 2

I believe you need to make it so host is a field that is visible in the results. Can you try this search instead?

index=_internal | head 2 | stats count by host

See if that will return results for you.
