KV Alert for Splunk

Provides an alert action to send alert results to a KV Store collection.

Other TAs exist with a similar alert action. This one provides the option to store event data as a single json string i.e. one data field in a KV row: [_time, data]. You could achieve something similar by modifying a search with `| tojson` but using this TA means you don't have to modify your existing saved searches and alerts.

Splunk 8.2+ (Python 3) compatible. Hoping for Cloud approval soon.

Using this App

Install the app. Setup a new KV - or pick an existing one to use. Configure a Splunk alert to use the newly-available action.

If your collection has the following fields, they will be populated: _time, alert_title, data (see below), metadata, search_name severity.

Choose whether to store the event data using the fields from your search results (e.g. | table a b c) or to render all of the event data as a single json string in a kv field called data. If doing the latter, you can unpack the json at search time using | inputlookup your_lookup | eval _raw=data | spath | fields - _raw, data

Mandatory parameters to the action include:
- collection
- app
- owner

Optional parameters:
- alert_title
- severity
- metadata

The metadata field is intended to support additional arbitrary fields to describe the status of the alert e.g. {"status": "open", "escalated": False}.
