Splunk alerting via email - search result defines who gets email


I have a scenario where we would like to send an email to users if they are found in a search.

For example, lets say we have a policy that states "you will never plug your ipod into a work computer"

We have the capability to detect this type of activity, but we would like for Splunk to send an email to the user as soon as Splunk finds the activity (scheduled search).

Hi mcbradford,

make sure the user email is in the search result. Then setup your own email script and parse SPLUNK_ARG_8 for the user email and use it in the script.

hope this helps ...
