Alert not triggering

Hi all,

I have created an alert with this simple query:

index=foo host="bar" action=fail | stats count by user | search count>40 

It is scheduled every hour and the trigger setting is Number of Results greater than 0

I have tried adding table and fields commands but it still doesn't work

Why could this happen?

What is your search time frame?
A user would have to fail 40 times within your search time frame to qualify as an alert.

Is that what you're expecting?

Yes, I am expecting that.

I have found the problem and was the email configuration as @harishalipaka tell me. The alerts didn't appear because i had not set the action, and the email wasn't sending for a misconfiguration in server.
