Inserting variables

You can include variables, such as those specifying the action name or event type, when you define an action's email, OS command, or server command settings. The E-mail, OS Command, and Server Command tabs on the Action Properties window contain fields in which you can insert variables.

Note: Use the variable list in the Select Variable window rather than inserting variables by typing them in. If the variable you enter is not contained in the Select Variable list, it will not be substituted.

To insert a variable when defining an action:

  1. Click in one of the text entry fields with an associated Insert Var button.
  2. Click Insert Var.
  3. In the Select Variable window, select a variable and click OK.

    The variable is inserted into the text field.
