I am having issues including a multi-line String attribute in a PI AF Notifications message. The attribute in question is a concatenation of strings separated by char(10) as described here:Adding a carriage return (new line) to a string attribute. However, when trying to create a custom notification message with this attribute, the formatting removes the char(10) characters and the attribute appears as a horizontal block of text instead of a vertical list.
I am hoping to avoid having to split this multi-line attribute into separate attributes. Is it possible to pass this single attribute into PI AF Notifications while including the new line character in the formatting?
Multi-Line String Attribute on PI AF:
Design and HTML Preview tabs on PI Notifications email formatter (Note how the formatting of the "Item List" attribute changes from PI AF to PI Notifications):
Unfortunately, this is a limitation of Notifications. The application will ignore the newlines and just truncate everything into 1 line. The workaround for this is to create an analysis to split the PI tag value so that there is an attribute for each line.
