Using alerts with variables-"dynamic text" not working

Hello all,

I'm triggering an alert from a BPM, and have set the flag "dynamic text" on for the alert category associated with it. I'm doing it in a similar way to the blog 1382 by Michal:


The only difference is that I'm just assigning a fixed text instead of a payload element to the container element, which I've defined as simple type - string.

However, the text of the alert doesn't show anything. I'm getting an email with just "Process <id>" as the subject and "Alert ID: <number>" in the body of the email (the same in the Alert Inbox).

I'm starting to think that there could be something wrong in PI 7.1 which I'm using, as I've configured other alerts in scenarios without BPM without problem.

Thanks for your suggestions!

    I've solved it using an alert from the Enterprise Services Builder (Integration Repository). It's a new feature in PI 7.1. It seems the tab "Container" in the alert category didn't exist before (that's why you don't find it in the weblogs of Michal and others) and now you have to use it.
