Custom email alert

Hi,
Is it possible to customize body of email with alert? For example:

Object: VMTEST
Object Type: Virtual Machine
Status: Error
Alarm: High memory usage
Time: 2013-08-22 11:03:12
Details: "Memory usage" (95%) is above a defined threshold (95%)

there is no information about host (name) with this vm.

Hi Daniel,

Are you using the latest version of Veeam ONE? It seems like you're not, as in v7 we have added parent object name parameter to the email notifications of all our alerts.

Thanks!

I've tested v7, and I can see parent object name in email alert.
But if the virtual machine is a resource pool there is no information about host. I know that now it is easier to find the vm and host, but it would be great to specify what kind of information I can insert to email.

Do you mean if the VM is in the resource pool? Didn't get it.

Thanks!

Yes, I mean 'in the resource pool'. My mistake, sorry :)

Got it, the host name should be there no matter what. I will discuss it with the dev team. Thanks for the heads up!
