How to create email line break for an alert

New Member


We have an alert that sends out a notification to a user via email when they have a vulnerability. The email contains the CVE and the action to resolve it. The issue is that it is putting that all on one line and not listing them. I have googled this problem and checked with Splunk knowledgebase and have not found a solution.



================= Example ====================

I had a list of user IDs in a multi-value field. I wanted to send that list of IDs in the body of an email message with each ID separated by a newline. I was able to achieve this in Splunk Cloud 8.1.2008 by appending a newline string ("\n") to each user ID in the multi-value field like this:


Then I just inserted the token $result.USERID$ in the body of the email. The newline characters are included in the search result, but they are converted to newlines in the body of the email.
