Remove FQDN in alert message

Experts, is there a way to put in the nodename minus the FQDN in an alert message?

I don't know if this is still an issue for you all these years later . . .

If so, see if this document I created helps:

Assuming that the ${NodeName} macro is used. Removing ""  from the node caption should do the trick.

Ok. This leads me to the next question.... if I have over 600 devices that the captions are FQDN either I have to manual tweak them all (which if there is an easy way then I will do it) or is there a way to strip off the FQDN prior to sendin the alert?
