We have a requirement of sending an image and showing it in the body of the email for the users, is there a way of doing that ? We dont need to send it as an attachment. Can we do that using sendemail command of Splunk ? Please advise ?

Hi @pgadhari

I presume from the way you describe it that it needs to be a dynamic image as opposed to a static filler. Your best bet is use of custom sendemail or a scripted alert action (Upon detection of defined pattern, the script is triggered which then does the e-mail composition for you.

Here are some links that will help (though old are still relevant in parts)

I have a one static image that needs to be send to the user, no dynamic images. Is it possible that I keep the image in some location and using sendemail + html combination to load the image in the body and send it ? Please advise ?

@niyaz006  - no I did not get resolution on attaching image. Instead, I used plain text message and did not attach the image.
