Hi all,

following up on https://answers.splunk.com/answers/808200/splunk-alerts-not-sending-e-mail.html?childToView=810356#a....

I wanted to figure out if there were any permissions needed to enable a splunk alert from my account. Is there a way I can check the permissions needed to create a working splunk alert (that sends out an email)?

Not sure if i'm providing enough information, so please let me know if i need to provide more.

You need below capabilities set to user role under which alert are triggered.

schedule_search = enabled
list_settings = enabled
admin_all_objects = enabled
(This capability is required if the mail host requires login credentials. It is for PDF mail delivery only.)

@golcondar ,

Sometime email ID would have an issue with exchange servers which does not allow to recieve any emails.
Just my 2 cents here :

try adding - @exchange.domain.com

For xample - First.lastname@exchange.org.com , where org could be your organizational name
