Join Josh Samuelson for an in-depth discussion in this video Advanced alerting, part of Learning Splunk.
- [Man] Let's step back for a second and look…at some of the advanced options available in Alerting.…Splunk provides tokens that can be used to insert…useful information into your alert messages.…The search metadata tokens are one example.…Here are a couple of those tokens.…The name token will insert the name of the search itself.…Alert severity will give you the severity,…and results link will give you a link to the search results.…The metadata tokens are useful…for providing information about the alert…but are limited in that they don't give you…insight into the cause of the alert.…
The result token, allows you to insert results directly…from your search and it uses the first search result.…This is important to realize because…if you are using these search tokens,…you should structure your searches to ensure…that they narrow enough that the top search result…will always have the information you need.…So result.host will give you the host name…of the first search result.…Result.source will tell you the source,…
