I've started seeing the following error message on Splunk 8.2.1 since installing alert_manager app and I'd like to clean it up.
- Error from my deployment server, from btool checks - Version Splunk 8.2.1 - CentOS7 - I have /etc/deployment-apps/alert_manager/README/alert_manager.conf.spec there. So I assume that's what it's looking for.
# Error 08-10-2021 13:23:41.948 -0700 WARN Application [28063 MainThread] - No spec file for: /opt/splunk/etc/deployment-apps/alert_manager/default/alert_manager.conf\n 08-10-2021 13:23:41.948 -0700 WARN Application [28063 MainThread] - Invalid key in stanza [alert_manager] in /opt/splunk/etc/deployment-apps/alert_manager/default/alert_actions.conf, line 12: param.urgency (value: low).\n

Remove the /etc/deployment-apps/alert_manager/README directory from your deployment app and try again. The .spec files are reference and contain examples with descriptions of parameter that are not valid values. That is why you are getting the errors.
Also consider putting any other configs you modified in /etc/deployment-apps/alert_manager/local Never directly modify configs in the default directory.
