allow event fields as alert columns

For Windows events specifically, the current alert listing should be able to include the EVENTSOURCE detail in that display.  Seeing the DataSource name and Instance name, which are identical for those, is less than desirable.  I know I can add custom columns, but I checked and that is not a column that can be added.  It could work also if the instance or datapoint label could be set based on EVENTSOURCE, but I don't think that sort of thing is possible in the EventSource definition, at least nothing I have found so far.

  • I would like DataPoint to be mapped to EventSource, this makes sense to me.  An argument, in our environment, against using custom columns would be that most of the time he custom column would have no data for 90% of the event rows and therefore wastes dashboard real-estate.
