Templating email notifications

Hi all,

I hope you can help. I have a liitle problem:
I created several alerts which nearly delivers the same text but sometimes a few parts of them changes. So I tried to use variables but did not found al solution.
For Example I have a text in the body of the email

[SystemOwner] 2323-office

This cchnges from time to time to
[SystemOwner] xyz

To avoid editing 150 alerts I wanted to put the xyz part into a variable and then work with this variable like (example)

variable_of_xyz = "New-XYZ"
[SystemOwner] {variable_of_xyz}

which then display in the body of the email
[SystemOwner] New-XYZ

Or perhaps I can put the whole text in a kind of include-file and include it within the email text?
So I only have to edit the text from time to time.

Thanks to all,
I hope you understand my description...


So if I summarize you would like to show the value of a variable in the body of the email?

Where does your variable come from? Isn't it rather a field ?

Are you using Watcher or Rules for alerting ?

I do not know what is used. How can I determine it?
It is the Alerting of OpenDistro for Elasticsearch.
See enclosed pictures

OpenSearch/OpenDistro are AWS run products and differ from the original Elasticsearch and Kibana products that Elastic builds and maintains. You may need to contact them directly for further assistance.

As per the bot you will need to ask aws, that's a different product to the one we release.

Ah. Ok. Thanks.
I just found the documentation because of the hint :slight_smile:
