How to put the alert name into the subject of an Ambari Alert

New Contributor


I want to put the alert name in the subject of the email alert


I followed the example in but the following does not fill in the  variables and I just the the variable names in the email.

<![CDATA[Ambari: [$alert.getAlertState()]-[$alert.getAlertName()]-[$alert.getAlertText()]]]>

If I use the template as it is, the email populates with the summary variables, ie:

<![CDATA[Alert Summary: OK[$summary.getOkCount()], Warning[$summary.getWarningCount()], Critical[$summary.getCriticalCount()], Unknown[$summary.getUnknownCount()]]]>

Is there a trick to get the subject to show the $alert variables to the subject?

Thanks in advance!
