Alerting

Alert Script Literal Argument

New Member

Does anyone know if it is possible, and if so, what the syntax is for passing a literal argument to an alert script. Each syntax I've tried results in the script failing to be called. I have attempted surrounding the argument in single quotes, double quotes, (), and quotes within (). What I'm looking for is something like the following in the alert script dialogue box:

alertscript.pl "AA"

Where the alert script would find AA as the 9th argument.

Has anyone been able to get this to work?

We tried this with no luck in 5.x. What we do instead is pass that variable via outputcsv, then call that csv from within the script to pass it where it needs to go.
