hi,

i have to attach the current time in sendemail
Below is my search:

index=_internal| head 5|table source,sourcetype | sendemail to=abc@abc.com server=localhost subject="Report No 1 has been executed at"+""+now()  message="This is an example message" sendresults=true inline=true format=raw sendpdf=false

and also i have tried

index=_internal| head 5|table source,sourcetype | sendemail to=abc@abc.com server=localhost subject="Report No 1 has been executed at"+""+$_time$  message="This is an example message" sendresults=true inline=true format=raw sendpdf=false

but i am not getting the date in the message.

Getting Output:
Report No 1 has been executed at

Expected Output:
My Subject : Report No 1 has been executed at 27/05/2015 10.12.10 AM

Please suggest how to edit my search.

Thanks in Advance

Hello!
Why don't you use the Email Actions dialog box to send your email? it will be simple, by using $job.earliestTime$ inthe subject field.
Thanks

[November 05, 2018] [03:12:04] , this does not give AM or PM
So, either it should give AM/PM or give the value in 24 H format

Thanks in Advance
