Custom Alert

This app can be used to send a basic alert in a nice template. After installing the app, the alert action "Send email alert with custom template" is available. This app supports HTML.
Use your splunk results in your fields. (e.g.$result.message$)

How to configure:
1. First put your base64 logo in de "logo_base64.dat" file. (600px x 80px)
2. Change the footer text in the "footer.html" file.
3. Enable the app via the app manager (/en-US/manager/search/apps/local)
4. Define SPLUNK_HOME in your environment variables
5. The alert action contains 5 configurable fields (Receivers, Priority, Subject, Message, Link to the dashboard). Configure them in the Splunk GUI when creating the alert.
6. Make sure you configured the email settings for your splunk server.
