TitleHow to add port name in notification emails
Add port names to notifications emails sent from NetSight
  • NetSight
  • Console
1. Edit the alarm in question.

2. Change to the Actions tab.

3. Place a check in the Override Content box.

4. Click on the Edit Content button

5., Click on the Show Keywords link at the lower left. This will display a list of key words that you can add to the email subject and the e-mail body. $alarmSubcomponent will provide the alias of the port in the notification.

6. Click the Apply button.

7.  Click the Close button.
Additional notes
Please note that the alias information for the port will not display the name until the second trap/event comes in. The first time the notification will get sent before the port cache is populated with the name. After that you should get the name.

See: Traps are not displaying port alias information in NetSight Console > Event Logs
