Splunk Search

How do you view the search used to generate an alert?

Hello--

I am trying to see the search that was used to create a certain alert. Is there a search or dashboard that can be used in order to view the search used to create an alert?

Thank you

From the top right corner menu in your Search Head, go to Activity -> Triggered Alerts. You should see a records for each alert being triggered and see option under Action column to view results which show search and results .

When I do that, there are no results yet there are alerts being fired. Where else would you recommend looking?

Just to confirm, there are dropdowns on that page for app and user(owner). Was it set to appropriate values? Set both to all of you're looking for all alerts.
