Hey there !
For all of y’all that are using Custom Violation Descriptions, you should be pleased to know that we are now fully interpolating the variables in the description field prior to publishing the NrAiIncident event.
For those that are not familiar with the NrAiIncident NRDB Event Type, whenever an Incident (formerly known as a ‘Violation’) is opened or closed in your account, we write out an event record to your NRDB account that captures all of the details of that event. Before today, when we wrote out the contents of the Custom Violation Description to the NrAiIncident event, we used the raw input text. We did not interpolate the variables into the event specific values. As of today, when we write out this event, we will use the fully interpolated string.
This field has always been fully interpolated when it appeared in your notifications. Very soon, it will appear fully interpolated on the new Incident and Issue pages as well. Having these Custom Violation Descriptions appear on Incident pages can serve as an inline, mini runbook for the specific incident.
So… If you add a Custom Violation Description that looks like this:
Then, when you look at your NrAiIncident Events, you will see the following:
