System_CAPS_ICON_important.jpg Important


Any Windows user with write permissions on the Windows Event Log may be able to access job steps that are activated by SQL Server Agent alerts. To avoid this security risk, SQL Server Agent tokens that can be used in jobs activated by alerts are disabled by default. These tokens are: $(A-DBN), $(A-SVR), $(A-ERR), $(A-SEV), and $(A-MSG).

If you need to use these tokens, ensure that only members of trusted Windows security groups, such as the Administrators group, have write permissions on the Event Log of the computer where SQL Server resides before enabling them.

Replace tokens for all job responses to alerts
Select this check box to enable token replacement for jobs that are activated by SQL Server alerts.
