Notification adapters receive events from Domain Managers or notifications from Global Managers. The information from the event or notification is available in the Notification Adapter in a current event object. The attributes of this object describe the properties of the notification or event such as the time the event occurred, the name of the object where the event occurred, the type of event, and additional information.

The filter, notify, and custom scripts, described in Chapter 7, “Notification Adapter Framework,” utilize the current event object to access the attributes of an event or notification. In these scripts, the variable currentEvent represents the current event object. For example, the following code may be used to access the instance display name from a notification:

x = currentEvent->icInstanceDisplayName;
