Been investigating the Alert Manager most of the afternoon, but can't find a way to use variables to list dependencies of a node in the body of an email alert when the node changes status. My manager likes the idea of dependencies so that he doesn't get 100 emails when a WAN link goes down for a remote site. He'd much rather get a node alert for the WAN router going down, but then in the body of the email, a list of all the nodes behind it that are dependent on that node.
Anyone know if this is possible? Doesn't look like it is now, but maybe it can be a feature request for a future version?
I can see it's been over 4 years and this is still not in the product? I can see the auto-dependency already knows which is down and which is unreachable - we need a mechanism to put this in an alert!!
for instance, I have an example node below - we just need some kind of function to show these dependencies in the email.
