When configuring or modifying an alert rule, you can assign a task template to add
required information. Custom script can be used to dynamically assign alert fields to the
task. When required, both task templates and custom script can be used.
Assigning a task template
Assign a task template to an alert rule to populate fields in the alert that is
generated with predetermined information. The information in the task template
fields populate the fields of the resultant alert. This information is fixed and
repeated each time the template is used.
Configuring custom script
Configure custom script to populate fields in the alert that is generated with
dynamic information. The resultant alert shows information that is current and this
information can change each time that an alert is generated.
Assign a task template and use custom script
You can optionally both assign a task template to an alert rule and use custom script
that inserts dynamic values into the alert fields. In this way, certain fixed
information is displayed along with information that changes according to the
specified requirements. When both task template and script are used, the task
template runs first and thereafter the script runs.
