Custom alert actions overview
Unique use cases can require custom alerting functionality and integration.
Use the Splunk platform custom alert action API to create alert action apps that admins can download and install from Splunkbase. Users can access and configure installed custom alert actions in Splunk Web. The API lets you create a user experience consistent with the standard Splunk platform alerting workflow.
