I have upgraded Splunk4.x to 5.0.1 and able to generate PDF from Dashboard views . If i created custom Search&Report with mail alert it is not working. i.e splunk is sending mail with CSV file instead of pdf as a attachment. I am using Splunk 5.0.1 Enterprise Trial version.
Can you please provide input on this?
The document that was listed above is old and does not apply to the 5.0.1 version. The functionality and manual configuration that is being refferenced is already builtin to the new version.
Do you know there is configuration which you want to attache the email alert? You will need to select PDF attachment when you configure saved search alert. Please take look at following manual and confirm your configuration. Hope this help.
