Adding links to SolarWinds Email Alerts (ie Link to "Real-Time Event Viewer")

Jump to solution

I'm looking to make our SolarWinds a "one-stop shop". Currently our monitoring does its job and emails an alert as expected.

What I would like to have is as much useful information in that email alert as possible. Namely, when an email alert comes in I would like the recipient to be able to have all (as much as) the data they would need to troubleshoot the issue.

The template for the email alerts offers a URL link to bring you to the node, or the alert, or just to acknowledge the alert. What I would like to see would be a link to go directly to the "Real-Tme Event Log Viewer" .

We're trying to push the use of this rather than an admin logging directly to a server, etc

Any suggestions would be great. Thank you.

I guess it would be something like https://domain.com/Orion/APM/Admin/RealTimeEventLogViewer/Default.aspx?NetObject=N:${Node.NodeID}}&C...

Update with your preferred CredId.

I haven't tested this so YRMV.

I don't know how I missed something like that. So simple, yet effective.

I'm not sure about the CredId portion but removing that from my URL and it gave me what I was looking for.

Credid=-3 is the way Orion tells it to just try to poll using the creds we already have on the node, so im not surprised that if you trim that part of the string it just defaults top the same thing.
