Scheduled Export of Indexed Data (SEND) to File

Overview
Details
This is a Splunk Modular Alert used to facilitate scheduled export of indexed data (SEND) to a file location

The exported file is just a gzipped CSV of the search results that triggered the alert.

The real intent of this add-on though is as an example for developers to follow to show how you can essentially leverage the Modular Alerts framework to perform a scheduled data output.

Other types of outputs to consider implementing : ftp,scp,jms,kafka,aws,rdbms,datawarehouse,some other data storage or processing platform etc...

Note from the Modular Alerts engineer

The only thing to keep in mind is constraint of alerts in terms of scalability. The alert action script has a limited lifetime before it’s being killed by the scheduler. The scheduler itself is also not designed for massive output loads. It should be perfectly fine for smaller scale output, though.
