Re: BNA Alert Customization

To change the "From" address, go to Monitor -> Event Notification -> E-mail.


From there you can change the "Reply Address."


You can customise some of the other message formats, but something to think about is "Where is BNA going to get that information from?" 


So for item 2 below, where will BNA learn that it is on the "Non-Prod Fabric" ? There's ways of doing this, based upon how you group devices, what custom fields are in use, etc, but it's something to think about.
