Passing Variables to an external command.

Hi guys

I’m writing a script that automatically generates an issue in Atlassian Jira and I need to , or I’d like to, to pass some information to the script I’m executing from the handler.
It would be nice if I can pass for example which is the issue, let’s say, server down or whatever the problem is, is that possible?

An example of what I’d like to do:
{
“handlers”: {
“jira_test_issue”: {
“type”: “pipe”,
“command”: “/etc/sensu/handlers/create-issue.sh $SENSU_VAR1 $SENSU_VAR2”
}
}
}

Them from the script I could take those variables and generate the Ticket with some extra information.

Thank you for your time and support
Regards

Hey,

Basically you want to add a variable to your client definition then you can access it in your command there like ::my_sensu_var:::

Read up on it here: https://sensuapp.org/docs/latest/reference/checks.html#check-token-substitution

Thanks,

Josh

Hi Joshua
Maybe I did not myself clearn, for example in nagios I have a variable call HOSTNAME which contains the name of the hostname of the client being checked, what I want is
to pass as an argument to may script that information… is that possible?

For example reading /vol2/opt/sensu/embedded/lib/ruby/gems/2.3.0/gems/sensu-plugins-mailer-1.0.0/bin/handler-mailer.rb I found this:

headers = {

‘X-Sensu-Host’ => (@event[‘client’][‘name’]).to_s,

‘X-Sensu-Timestamp’ => Time.at(@event[‘check’][‘issued’]).to_s,

‘X-Sensu-Address’ => (@event[‘client’][‘address’]).to_s,

‘X-Sensu-Check-Name’ => (@event[‘check’][‘name’]).to_s,

‘X-Sensu-Status’ => status_to_string.to_s,

‘X-Sensu-Occurrences’ => (@event[‘occurrences’]).to_s

}

So the mailer takes the client name from somewhere, maybe from the sensu-handler include files, with this information, the mail is sent with all the information , hostname having the problem,
the state of the alert and so on, I want to do something similiar with my script, where is or from where can I get the variable that tells me which node is being executed?

Thanks
