Paychex Cover Your Assets - losing alert Time Range

Hi All,  

and @dmarling and @efavreau 

I have been using the Paychex Cover Your Assets techniques from the 2019 Splunk Conference to export user config and load into Splunk Cloud.  I have used it for a few sites but with the latest site I have a problem where Alerts defined with Time Range set to Custom have loaded into cloud with Time Range set to "All Time".

This will obviously cause a performance problem especially as many alerts run frequesntkly and usually the Time Range is set to 5 minutes.

Has anyone else noticed these settings being lost in the Paychex process?  

For example this:

Keith_wgtn_0-1636003154961.png

has become:

Keith_wgtn_2-1636003235046.png

 

I have checked and can see the that the first Paycheck SPL worked fineas I can find these fields in the resulting csv:

But the second Paychex SPL that assembles the CreateCurl has dropped these fields:

 

curl -k -H "Authorization: Splunk XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX/servicesNS/nobody/search/saved/searches -d name="AWS ASG ELB Activity" -d

I really like this process and am keen to work out a solution but am asking in case someone else has already resolved it.

Thanks heaps.

Perhaps I can answer this myself.

At https://github.com/paychex/Splunk.Conf19 the CYA_Import_Splunk_Query SPL already has dispatch.* at the end of line 18 after lookup.*

BUT it hasnt been added to the end of lines 24 and 26. 

So it seems that someone was adding it but didnt finish it.  

But I think that is all that might be required to fix it.
