HTTP Alert Action (v7)

Splunk AppInspect Passed
Admins: Please read about Splunk Enterprise 8.0 and the Python 2.7 end-of-life changes and impact on apps and upgradeshere.
Ever wanted to trigger a HTTP request from an alert but needed to customise the endpoint, query string, headers, http method, etc.
This flexible addon allows you to craft a HTTP request using static values or even dynamic values from the alert's search results.

What does this app do?

Enables an alert action that can send customised HTTP/REST requests to an endpoint. You can use search results from the alert to populate all the core fields of of the request including endpoint, headers, query string parameters and payload.

How does it work

After creating an alert, add the HTTP Alert Action at the bottom of the dialog. From there populate the fields as required. For most of the fields you can parameterise data by enclosing the fields in {field_name}. Additional fields are seperated by &

For example, you could set a custom header with the following X-Forwarded-For={host}&Authorization=Splunk {token}

The fields you specify must exist exactly as named in the search results or substitution will be skipped for that section. ie If you have a payload of data={ThisFieldDoesNotExist} and querystring of param={ThisFieldDoesExist} then payload won't do substituion but querystring will.


Support is not guaranteed and will be provided on a best effort basis.
