    Log Monitor - available variables for e-mail

    Are there any global variables available when the Log Monitor triggers an event? I'd like to get an e-mail if there's a "Z-Wave Error" in the log so I have a LogMatch set up to trigger my e-mail event based on the LogType, but I'd like to include the actual error in the LogText. Is this possible?

    Not currently but it’s a good idea and relatively easy to do so, stay tuned.

      windracer I've uploaded beta version 3.1.0.1 if you want to give it a try.

      When a LogMatch is found the following Global Variables are updated before triggering the Event and/or Script. These Global Variables are all of type string.
      SHLogType
      SHLogTypeEx – The LogType with matched characters highlighted
      SHLogText
      SHLogTextEx – The LogText with matched characters highlighted
      SHLogFrom
      SHLogDate

      These can be used in emails, etc by using Replacement Variable $$GLOBALVAR:name: where name is the name of the Global Variable.

      So, to display the text of the log message, with matching characters highlighted in red, use:

      $$GLOBALVAR:SHLogTextEx:

      Note – The Extended variables use html to highlight the text.

        Thanks, Steve! I've upgraded and updated my e-mail event with the new variables. I'll let you know how it goes.

          The new variables seem to work. I was able to use "$$GLOBALVAR:SHLogType:" in the subject and then "$$GLOBALVAR:SHLogFrom:: $$GLOBALVAR:SHLogTextEx:" in the body of the e-mail and it worked great.

          Thank you!

            The highlighting works too, very nice.
