Variables in messages

Variables can be used in the messages to make the content more specific. For example, a message can state "The [SR] from [Account] has a severity level [Value] and has been open for 2 hours." Using an SQL statement, you can fill in each of the variables with specific data to make the message more meaningful. This method also allows you to use the same message for more than one policy.

CAUTION:  Modifying or creating SQL statements and messages that use variables set by SQL statements requires the assistance of your Siebel Technical Account Manager.
