Using alert description, time generated and other data in a scripted action


The article gives an example of how alarm data can be used in scripting actions.


You would like to use alarm data in custom scripts.


Run script — select this option if you want to run a custom script when the alarm is triggered or when the alarm status changes. By running a post-alarm script, you can automate routine tasks that are normally performed when specific alarms fire. For example, if a critical system is affected, you may need to immediately open a ticket with the in-house support or perform some corrective actions that will eliminate the problem.

In the Value field, enter the path to the executable file (please note that the executable file must be located on the Veeam ONE server). You can use the following parameters in the command line for running the script: %1 — alarm name; %2 — fired node name; %3 — triggering summary; %4 — time; %5 — alarm status; %6 — old alarm status.
