Hello

In Enterprise Security, there is the option to run a script as a follow on action to a notable event. Is it possible to pass field values from the notable event to the selected script?

Cheers.

Hi gary.richardson2, you can get access to the search results as described here : http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/6.4.1/Alert/Configuringscriptedalerts

Essentially, "SPLUNK_ARG_8" contains the filename of the search results, which you could manipulate to extract the fields you are interested in.

Please let me know if this helps!

Did you miss .conf21 Virtual?

Good news! The event's keynotes and many of its breakout sessions are now available online, and still totally FREE!
