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...

Activation Key

You require an activation key to use this App. Visit http://www.baboonbones.com/#activation to obtain a free,non-expiring key

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.
