Thanks for the post. I have tried your instructions and it works very well, except I get emails for every single operation. Is there a way to do the same but limit the emails to commits only?

( cmd eq commit )


I haven't tried this but hvcomputech's experience is exactly what my first reaction was. Wouldn't this send an email for every operation?

Hello there!!

Thank you for the post! 

I think this tittle is not precise, because if you configure this, you are gonna receive an e-mail every config log, not just policy config logs.



Is there a way to restrict what type of config log is sent? Or no?
