For a scheduled report, is it possible not to attach a CSV file when there's no results?

For a scheduled report, is it possible not to attach the CSV file when there's no results, but when there are results, do attach the CSV file?

Looks like there's only this option in savedsearches.conf:

action.email.sendcsv = [1|0]
* Specify whether to send results as a CSV file.
* Default: 0
    (or the 'sendcsv' setting in the alert_actions.conf file)

Hi @kevinhyleepccw
instead of a scheduled search use an alert fired when there's any result, attaching the csv to the eMail.

Thanks! But we kind of still want to receive an email even when there's no results, but without the CSV file. When there are results, we want to receive an email with the CSV file attached. Is it possible?

Hi @kevinhyleepccw,
I don't think!
eventually it's possible to attack a csv with a message but i don't think that it's possible not attaching a file when empty!

Ciao.
