Issue/Introduction

I need to add a custom string at the end of some alarms.  These alarms cannot be customized in the sending probe but I need to add information.

For example, the alert which the hub sends when it cannot connect to a configured queue:

Queue 'GET-UIM-ALARMS' failed to connect to hub /Domain/hubname/hubrobot/hub
