Alert Email with link to website being monitored

Version 2

    I was on the weekly call with Ed. Somebody asked about how to get the link into the alert email. I had spent most of a few days working though this and was told to share my work.

     

    This started when my NOC told me they wanted to have a link to the website that is "down" so they can do a one click verify process before calling to the admin saying it is "down".


    After some digging I found this
    Put the URL in an alert when the HTTP monitor goes down - SolarWinds Worldwide, LLC. Help and Support

    Then I started in to the madness.

     

    Requirements to use...Application Custom Properties named....

     

    ${N=SwisEntity;M=Application.CustomProperties.PrimaryEmail}

    ${N=SwisEntity;M=Application.CustomProperties.PrimaryPhone}

    ${N=SwisEntity;M=Application.CustomProperties.Priority}

    ${N=SwisEntity;M=Application.CustomProperties.PrimaryContact}

    ${N=SwisEntity;M=Application.CustomProperties.SecondaryEmail}

    ${N=SwisEntity;M=Application.CustomProperties.SecondaryPhone}

    ${N=SwisEntity;M=Application.CustomProperties.SecondaryContact}

     

    In the HTTP component monitor, put the URL into the UserNotes section at the bottom.

     

     

    ninja edit -

    When you build the alert, you MUST build the alert based upon "Component" not application.
