Hello,
What are the variables I can use the display_fields cell under the incident setting tab?
Also, there is a way to make the Alert description more readable it is ignoring my description structure and present it in a single row.

Thanks

Hi
display_fields contains a space-delimited list of field names. The field names are used to pick fields from the results of the alert and will be shown in the incident posture dashboard when you expand an incident by clicking the icon at the beginning of a row:
Example

In my exmple, I added 'user' to display_fields, which is a field in the results triggering the alert.

Regarding the description: What do you mean exactly with description?

Hi Simon,
Thank you for the quick answer, I've understood now how to use the display_fields.
About the description I would like to be able to see it as an email content, for example:

Description:
1. Test
2. Test

And not

Description: 1.Test 2.Test

Thank you.

I've found how to fix the description as I wanted using HTML Tags.
