About Event Console tokens

Event Console tokens provide information when a task executes in response to a received alert. When a task executes, the Event Console tokens are replaced with readable values.


Every solution has specific tokens that you can use to create a task for that solution. However, Event Console only resolves tokens to readable values in response to alerts from the tasks that were created using Event Console tokens.

For example, if you have a Monitor task that was created using Monitor tokens, you can assign it to Event Console. However, when Event Console receives an alert from that task, it cannot translate the tokens or generate readable values. Instead, the Monitor token returns its literal value rather than a readable value.
