I'm trying to dynamically add risk modifiers with sendalert for Enterprise Security. The ad-hoc search works and adds risk modifier event, but the saved search fails with the below error. I raised dispatch.ttl by a large amount for testing.

| from datamodel:Intrusion_Detection
| search
[| inputlookup internal_ip | rename ip as src]


| eval risk_object_type=if(isnotnull(src_nt_host),"system","unmanged_system")
| eval risk_score=if(risk_object_type="system",40,5)
| eval risk_object=if(isnotnull(src_nt_host),src_nt_host,src)
| sendalert risk


"sendmodalert - action=risk STDERR -
ERROR: [Errno 2] No such file or

Any tips of where to turn from here?

Did you ever get a solution to this, I am having the same problem - the search runs when run manually and creates the risk index entries, but when run as a saved search gives me the same problem
