Can I use a variable for the either the Object or Application name in creating an outgoing message ?
I am trying to use a variable (ie <app_name> ) within the Object field when creating an outgoing message. When testing, the Object column in the browser populates as <$app_name> . Can I only use plain text within the Application and Object fields or can I use a variable?
I am using the following as a pattern match:
You can use HPOM action variables on most message and command text boxes, with some exceptions depending on the type of policy. We strongly suggest checking the available variables, with their corresponding exceptions, the help section for the type of policy you are using.
For example, the <$MSG_NODE> Returns the IP address of the managed node on which the original event took place. I placed this variable in the Object field and returned the IP address of my managed node in the object column. However, not all HPOM variables will work in this field.
Thanks for the reply.
So I am assuming since the variable I am using is a user defined variable it probably will not work in the Object field as well as the Application field? Is this correct?
