VMware Smart Assurance NOTIF includes the following operators for use in scripting:

  • str1 + str2 — Returns the concatenation of str1 and str2.

    "abc" + "def" ---> "abcdef"

  • number1 + number2 — Returns the sum of the two numbers.

    123 + 456 ---> "579"


    The script evaluation of VMware Smart Assurance NOTIF is string-based. VMware Smart Assurance NOTIF examines the two operands and, if both are legal numbers, it sums them. Otherwise, the two strings are concatenated. To ensure a concatenation regardless of string content, use the concat() function described.

  • number1 * number2 — Returns the product of the two numbers.

    3 * 4 ---> "12"
