    Email Template Generation


      Currently I'm trying to build several email templates that are generated based on certain alarms.  The following built in template is the most effective but I would like to include other variables.


      Alarm Name: [$Alarm Name]


      Summary: [$Alarm Summary]

      The following events were found



      EventID = [$Event ID]

      Source IP = [$Source IP]

      Destination IP = [$Destination IP]

      Source Port = [$Source Port]

      Destination Port = [$Destination Port]

      Source User = [$%UserIDSrc]

      Destination User = [$%UserIDDst]

      Eventcount = [$Event Count]

      Average Severity = [$Average Severity]

      Signature ID = [$Signature ID]

      Rule = [$Rule Message]



      I would like to include other fields like the Data Source, Receiver Name, ASN Geo Src & Dst, etc.  Is there a list of possible variables?  I am assuming it is based on the database, if so is there a place to get all of the possible variables in our ESM?  Any help would greatly appreciated.  Thanks!

          You can use the variable insertion button to the right of the subject field in the email template to insert the available variables into your email. This should have a list of available varaibles including the ones you need. I've also included a list below of common fields and their variable names.

          Average Severity[$Average Severity]

              This was very useful for alarm email template modification where the KB's and the Product Guide were not (at least not visibly to google).


              Thanks for the question and the very useful answer.   If you know of a place where this is documented a pointer would be grand otherwise I"ll bookmark this page.
