Hi guys, quick question about email notification of Splunk Enterprise 6.5.0 (Free license group). I can't seem to configuring email alerts if incident happens as per 'Email notification action' from 'Splunk Enterprise Alerting Manual 6.5.3.pdf'. Is it because I am using a free version of Splunk instead of paid one? Please advise and thank you

Thanks to both of you for your comments. We have a set of requirements for offline browsing of the doc set and hope to make some progress with development for that in the second half of this year.

I second that. I assume though the bandwidth required to download the complete doc library even zipped would be quite extensive. Especially if you got numerous overlapping users downloading such large files. If there is a way around that then it would make researching a whole lot easier not having to chase the links all over the place.

Where can I download all Splunk docs for release 6.2.1 in one zip archive? If this isn't available, how about adding this capability to the Documentation site so customers can obtain the entire doc library for a specific version in once zip file rather than having to individually download each doc (pdf). Thanks.
