Variables and examples

Orion Platform products, including the Alert Manager, the Traps Viewer, the Syslog Viewer, and Network Atlas can employ Orion variables. These variables are dynamic and, in the case of alerts, parse when the alert is triggered or reset.

As of Orion Platform version 2015.1, variables have changed to a more flexible format. The previous implementation was SQL based, and the new version is based on SolarWinds Information Service (SWIS). For example, the variable ${ResponseTime} is now ${N=SwisEntity;M=ResponseTime}.

Check your version number by scrolling to the bottom of the page in the Orion Web Console.
