Trying to create an email alert for an object access but %DSN% and %MEMBER% variables are not getting resolved when the email is generated.



For an object access events, there is no 'member' or 'dsn' value, these are when used with the PDS monitor events. 

For object access, you have the variable ENTITY that *if* for a data set, will contain the data set name. If it was a resource, it'll be the resource name. 


If you also attach this email action to a PDS monitor statement, when it fires, it will have MEMBER and DSN filled in. 


The fact that the simulation shows %MEMBER% is telling you that for the selected event type, it's invalid.
