you need to have your alert configured in the file named alert_actions.conf
You should locate this file in /opt/splunk/etc/shcluster/apps/new_app/default/alert_actions.conf

If my comment helps, please give it a thumbs up!

you need to have typical app structure

"shcluster" directory
-myapp
--local
---whatever.conf

that's what this error was for me
