Alerts Messaging Customization
At the moment, it appears one cannot customize the messaging or subject line of the alerts. This makes it difficult to categorize the alerts. For instance, we would like to categorize alerts into different severity levels, such that severity level will help determine the level of attention that is paid to the alerts when they trigger. If it is possible to prefix or append some customization code and message to either the subject line and/or actual message, then a monitoring team can use the custom code/message to determine the severity or category of the alert when it triggers.
Some alerts may just be informative, warnings and severe and one should be able to categorize as flexible but standardized as works for the organization.
When sending to events v1 there is no way to send a custom event with json. It needs some more work to make it useful.
custom json event sample:
"summary": "Ops Manger Alert -- Alert Text"
If you had multiple ops manager installs it would be possible to route them off details.groupId contains your groupid, but without being allowed to pass a json payload can only trigger events can't do any auto resolves, set title, etc
It would be helpful for the subject lines to be more descriptive. The timestamp isn't that helpful, it's already part of the email. We would like to see a human-friendly cluster name, for cluster-specific alerts, and something specific, like "Oplog", "Storage", "Maintenance", "Restart", and so on.
