Prior to version 7.0, I had Error notifications setup to send me the task name and output. With the new notification structure, it will no longer send the output because it trys to send the output of the "notification". Is there another way to do this? How is everyone else handling error notification.

In the Notification, please use PrevTask instead of Active reference.

When I used that, it says [Task does not exist or is not selected.]. Ideas?

Do you really get that in runtime? I mean, there is a risk you get that in design time but not runtime.

Very strange, I think I just figured it out on accident.

Job: {JOB(Active|Name)}

Task: {TASK(PrevTask,Name)}

Result: {TASK(PrevTask,Result)}

Exit Code: {JOB(PrevTask|ExitCode)}

Output: {TASK(PrevTask,StdOut)}

Error Output: {TASK(PrevTask,StdErr)}

Here is the outout.

Job: Job Name Is Correct

Task: Task Name is Correct

Result: Failed

Exit Code: [Job does not exist or is not selected]

Output: [Task does not exist or is not selected.]

Error Output: [Task does not exist or is not selected.]

When I change it to the following, it is correct...the output comes back correct:

Job: {JOB(Active|Name)}

Task: {TASK(PrevTask,Name)}

Result: {TASK(PrevTask,Result)}

Exit Code: {TASK(PrevTask|ExitCode)}

Output: {TASK(PrevTask,StdOut)}

Error Output: {TASK(PrevTask,StdErr)}

Yes, you cannot use PrevTask on JOB - it can only be used on TASK. If you want ExitCode from JOB you need to use Active:

{JOB(Active|ExitCode)}
