Default message template

In Guardium v10.6 I were able to edit each appliances global template ("Message template") by adding the ip address of the appliance and the name of the template stated the same for each appliance while adding text to identify the appliance IP Address and I can use one template in Policy rule action. Now in v11.1 I can't edit "Default message template" and add IP address of Guardium appliance to distinguish which appliance send the message to SIEM. Please add a possibility to change "Default message template" or add a Appliance IP Address to the list variables in create a new template of message.

    With Guardium Data Protection V11.1 and later, we have additional message templates available. In the Global Profile, you have the ability to update the message template, please refer to this for more information. You can either edit a named message template or clone one to create your own based on the parameters listed.
