Version 9

    This article shows how to setup this script as an alert action. Please take time to review the main overview article if you have not already done so: Clickatell - SMS Gateway - Alert Overview. The main overview article contains information necessary to completely setup this script.


    This script is specifically designed for node based alerts.



    In the Trigger Actions I added 'Execute an External Program' action.


    This is the full text in the 'Network path to external program' field.

    C:\windows\system32\windowspowershell\v1.0\powershell.exe -ExecutionPolicy unrestricted -command "<C:\path\to\script>\Clickatell_Alert_Trigger_Action_Node.ps1 '${N=SwisEntity;M=DisplayName}' '${N=SwisEntity;M=Status;F=Status}' '${N=Generic;M=DateTime;F=OriginalValue}'"


    **You will need to update the <C:\path\to\script> in the above line to the location that you have the script saved.**


    I'm passing in the following Orion variables:

    • Node Name: ${N=SwisEntity;M=Node.DisplayName}
    • Node Status: ${N=SwisEntity;M=Status;F=Status}
    • Orion Date/Time: ${N=Generic;M=DateTime;F=OriginalValue}


    Once that alert action is completed then copy it to Reset Actions.




    Finish editing the alert and you should be done.
