Is it possible to generate a random string for notifications to act as a ticket id?

For example: [PRTG] ABC1234 SERVERNAME SENSORNAME ERROR

We are using a monitoring system which tries to catch a string as a ticket id....

email id notification ticket

Hi Max,

It's not possible to pass random strings to notifications. Do you require a special format? How do you pass the incident to the monitoring system?


Kind regards,

Hi Stephan,

we need an unique string inside the notification so our ticketing system can use it to create a single incident (including "OK"-Messages which close the incident).

Hi Maxt,

How about using %systemdatetime, it contains the timestamp from the notification (when it was triggered) - should be fairly unique... :) Otherwise, you'll probably need to come up with a custom notification script (PowerShell or something you prefer)...
