Hey there,

Thank you very much for your KB-posting.

Using the Warning- and Error-filters in the sensor settings, you can force the sensor to WARNING or DOWN state if the sensor receives a specific Syslog message.

However, it is not possible to forward this particular message or any parts of it within a notification.

The only thing which can be forwarded is a summary of the last 20 messages by using the placeholder %syslogmessages

For details, please refer to:

Best regards,
