This alert got muted, but it shouldn't have.

I presume this is the second part of the json that mutes 3-6 am. I'll have a go at removing that, but I'm not a json expert.

Would prefer 24 hour clock if that's an option :-)
It is an option. Just change the time format specification. Google for "strftime format" and use any format you want. For 24 hrs, it would be "%H:%M" and change the from and to fields to 24 hr format. As far as the other rule is concerned, just delete it.

Thanks for the reply.

I've amended the time format and converted my times to 24 hour clock.

I managed to delete the second mute. It's simple with JSON expertise (which I don't have) but knowing where to stop, which brace, do I still need the comma, these are the challenges. I used a chop and JSON validate method and that worked out.

It's working for the ZMNinja notifications too.

It doesn't care about the daysofweek and is still muting today (Sunday).

1. Could you please update ES
2. Please make sure you are using the key "daysofweek" to specify days (In the past, I was using "dow" somewhere in error)

Thanks for the quick response.

I've updated and it's still behaving a bit strangely. It seems to think it is Thursday today if I understand correctly. First day of the Epoch too.

Code: Select all

CONSOLE DBG-1:2020-09-13,13:58:36 |----> FORK:Shed2 (12), eid:223265 rules: (eid: 223265) -- Processing rule: 1 --

Hmmm. Seems to believe today is Thursday if I understand correctly. It's already muted based on time, however. I can drop Thur out of the json and see what occurs next.

Code: Select all

CONSOLE DBG-2:2020-09-14,06:57:42 |----> FORK:Shed2 (12), eid:223320 rules:(eid: 223320)  seeing if now:06:57 is between:06:30 and 22:00

CONSOLE DBG-1:2020-09-14,06:57:42 |----> FORK:Shed2 (12), eid:223320 rules: (eid: 223320) mute rule matched, not allowing

Dropping out Thu just leaves it the time and it's happy to match on that and mute (incorrectly). Feels like it matches OR instead of AND.

Code: Select all

CONSOLE DBG-2:2020-09-14,10:59:06 |----> FORK:Shed2 (12), eid:223349 rules: parsing rule 10:30/22:00 using format:%H:%M

What is the output of this sample program?

Code: Select all

use Time::Piece;
my $now = Time::Piece->new;
print ("Date is $now\n");
print ("Weekday is ".$now->wdayname."\n");
Assuming you save it as foo.pl, you can run it by doing

Code: Select all

 perl ./foo.pl
Is the output correct?

Here's the Perl bit -

Code: Select all

perl ./foo.pl
Date is Mon Sep 14 12:34:47 2020
Weekday is Mon
Correct fror my TZ.

I'll update ES once I've eaten.
