Splunk ES: Best way to do a Yes/No or simple indicator for acceptance of an alert?


Hi all,

My team needs to clear an alert with a totally different department before we consider it "published" for the purposes of audit etc. I need a SIMPLE way to mark an alert as "in review"  that has the ability to make the distinction between "published" and "in review" clear on dashboards. 

1. something simple that a non-tech team won't mess up
2. readable by dashboards

Thanks in advance!

I created a new "Security Domain" called Development, all my new rules have a notable that are then assigned to that until I am satisfied they are "in production" so to speak. Once they go in production i would put them into the relevant security domain.

This can easily be identified in the Incident Review Dashboard.



Hope this helps.
