Replacement messages for email alerts

Automation stitches with an Email action can leverage the formatting options provided by replacement messages to create branded email alerts.

You can enable a replacement message and edit the message body or select a customized replacement message group when you configure the automation action. When the automation stitch is triggered, the FortiGate will send the email with the defined replacement message.

In this example, a Security Rating report triggers an Email notification action. The email uses a customized replacement message group.

To configure the replacement message group in the GUI:
  1. Go to System > Replacement Message Groups and click Create New.
  2. Enter the following:



    Group Type


  3. Click OK.
  4. Select the group in the list and click Edit.
  5. Select Automation Alert Email and click Edit.

  6. Edit the HTML code as needed, then click Save.
