Ambari alerts notification has different views in iOS and windows based devices?

New Contributor

The format of Ambari Alerts have nice display with colour coding for OK and CRITICAL when checked on iPhone/Mac but its just tables and alert visible in Outlook.

Is the mail format broken or is not tested on non Apple devices?

Ambari does have some options to allow customization of the alerts format using the templated used.

Please see: https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/AMBARI/Customizing+the+Alert+Template

It's not a matter of Apple devices, but more a matter of Outlook. The existing template for emails (as pointed out by Jay SenSharma) uses internal CSS. Older versions of Outlook ignore internal CSS and require inline CSS instead. This makes for a very, very messy template file.

You can customize the email template to include CSS which is compatible with older versions of Outlook if you'd like.
