LUA script to detect to keywords

    Hi all,

     

    I'm looking to create a LUA script to detect the username in the alert text, if the usernames match - no action (disregard the alert)

     

    If no match - alert.

     

    Here is an example of the alert text:

     

    Unathorised Change Profile Entries: (Audit trail entry) USERNAME - USERNAME

     

     

    I have a similar script that takes variables using the preceding text: 

     

    local pattern = " pre=(%d+) invoke=(%d+) post=(%d+) send=(%d+) "

    local a = alarm.get()

    local vpre,vinvoke,vpost,vsend = string.match(a.message, pattern)

     

    But in the example alert text above there is no preceding text to set the variable on.

     

    Has anyone got any advice on how to build this further?

     

    Cheers,
