Siren Alert FAQ

Why are emails are not being sent?

Siren Alert uses emailjs to send emails. This NPM module requires a correct message to be formed, so make sure your configuration includes valid from and to values, as well as the proper authentication method for your email relay. For more information, refer to the emailjs documentation.

Why are reports not being generated?

Siren Alert uses either node-horseman or puppeteer to generate reports. The node-horseman NPM module requires PhantomJS to be installed on the computer running KaaE and Reports, and puppeteer requires Chrome. The default engine used is puppeteer, but this can be changed to horseman with the configuration property.

Why are watchers not running in my timezone?

Siren Alert uses the UTC timezone internally to execute schedule. While rolling watchers are not affected (that is every x minutes), the UTC timezone is used for absolute timed executions.

How can I avoid string encoding in mustache templates output?

Siren Alert uses Mustache to enrich the messages of actions with data from its execution. If you want to use double braces without them being replaced, use triple braces ({{{hello}}}). For more information, refer to the Mustache documentation.
