Stopping Splunk emails for No results found

New Member


I have scheduled a Splunk report that currently notifies me via email if the event count is greater than 3000 and is scheduled to run on hourly basis. Now when the event count is 0, I still get an email from Splunk with 'No results found' message in it. How do I stop getting these emails when the event count is 0? My requirement is to get emails only for events greater than 3000.

You may want to refactor your report as an alert search.

When scheduling alerts you can select Trigger alert when: Number of Results and is greater than: 0 under Trigger Conditions to prevent actions from executing when no results are found.

Add a Send email action and include an inline table for output similar to a report.
