I have created a custom alert action app as specified in the Splunk development documentation. I also created another more basic app to test and am still having the same issue. The issue is that the custom alert action ui params are not saving. If I manually add the action.testalert.param.subject to the entry in savedseraches.conf it will get passed to my script, but when I save the parmas from the UI they do not get back to the config file.
[testalert] is_custom = 1 label = Test Alert payload_format = json # A default param param.foo = Bar
The alert action UI
<splunk-control-group label="Subject"> <splunk-text-input name="action.testalert.param.subject" id="subject"> </splunk-text-input> </splunk-control-group>
I have tried including a savedsearches.conf.spec to define the custom param with no effect and have also attempted changing the permissions/exports in default.meta with no success. Any idea what is going on?
I suppose the subject parameter is defined on alert_actions.conf, right?
Also, I had a similar issue a while ago, and I guess It was solved by adding a alert_actions.conf.spec file containing my parameters and Its data types.
[my_alert_action] param.my_param = <string>
In my app I have placed this file under README dir.
