Alerts Failing to Trigger v7.1.1


Hi I'm trying to set up a basic alert to trigger whenever a Host search generates new results, the corresponding alert action is an email.

The host is constantly generating new data and when a normal search is conducted, new data can be seen being ingested. So its very obvious that data exists and that Splunk sees the data. But when i save the search as an alert that is supposed to trigger "per-result", so theoretically it should be going off constantly- yet nothing is being triggered (confirmed within the trigger alerts being empty). Additionally, emails are never generated.

There were some bugs in alert actions that were supposed to have been fixed in 7.1.2, 7.1.2 is out now perhaps try that version?
