Szymon -
The answer to your customization question is "no".  What you can format is
the Log Message and that's all.

I noticed the same when I was trying to build a ruleset. It seems there is
no way to do what I want. I wanted to be sure that I was not doing
something wrong.

When you look at the Events window you see a list of events (or presented
by cards). I ment such attributes like: date (day, month, hour), host name,
source (for instance "N") and a message formatted in trapd.conf. I know
that I can customise the last part of that event i.e the message. I can put
there my own message including a set of variables. But I would like for
instance not to display source or hostname (the hostname could be included
in the message part).Can I do this?

Regards and thank you for any advice,
