    Ability to use NCM variables within rules


      It would be great to be able to pull values from variables for each device when a policy rule is being checked. For example, we have a custom field on each device called "agent_interface." Its value is the name of the interface on the device which corresponds to the agentIP in NCM. We'd like to be able to verify that all devices are set to use this interface when sending syslog info, so that when received by NCM it is matched to the proper device. If we could use variables when writing rules, it would be a simple matter of matching the following string in configs:

      logging source-interface ${agent_interface}


      As of now, all we can check is that logging source interface is set to something, but no way to verify that it matches the IP used in NCM.
