LMS 3.1 Syslog Automated Action - How to pass variables to script?

Unanswered Question

I would like to pass variables to a windows bat file for processing.  The help seems to suggest that there are 2 available, device and message.  I would like to know how to reference them and what syntax to use to pass them to the batch file.  Are Facility, Sub-facility, Severity, Mnemonic and Description also availble? If so, how would they be referenced?  Thanks in advance.

The syntax for referencing these variables is discussed in the online help.  Essentially, you'll want to use %~1 and %~2 in your batch script to get the device and message respectively.  The message will be the full message, so you will need to do additional processing on that to extract the facility, severity, and mnemonic.
