    Use variables in email address for alerts


      This would be really helpful in creating alerts to notify the correct person where network management is highly distributed but centrally monitored:


      Create a custom field for a node. Let's call it TCON_email.

      Populate the field with an address (or addresses, separated by commas) for the technical contact(s) for that node.

      Create an email alert for that node.

      In the email/pager recipients section enter ${TCON_email}. Sadly, you can't currently use a variable in this field.

      The program parses the variable and inserts it into the address line in the message.

      Viola! Any alert generated by this node would be sent to the correct technical contacts.


      Unless there's another way?
