[SOLVED] notification types?


Oct 5, 2020
Toronto, Canada
I was trying to setup a notification matcher, but got stopped in my tracks when setting up a match rule:

Node type: Match field
Field: type

So... where do I find the value for type?

In the documentation I was able to find 4 different event names. Are these the types?
If not, how do I find out which type is emitted when an event is created?
If yes, can someone update the documentation to state that the event names are the possible field values in the match rules dialog.

No worries, your screenshot already explained everything, thus I am not in a hurry to have the info locally as well.
