How to limit each result maximum triggers of a custom alert action?

I'm looking to limit the the maximum results returned for a custom alert action to for example 10.

 

If a user chooses to trigger the alert action for each result - it should limit to 10 triggers per result. I have looked into maxresultrows but didn't get anywhere with it as it would have to defined in limits.conf.

Is it possible to add  | head 10 to each saved alert in an app or something like that for only alerts that have my custom alert action?

 

Thanks in advance

You could make the trigger action 'custom' and add the head 10 command to the alert, but that will be specific to all actions in the alert, not just your custom action.

Thanks for your answer bowesmana, do you have an example I could try out? 

As I'm not sure how I would go about making the trigger action custom.
