Alert encoding options:
  • Encode alert - the whole alert content will be URL encoded and if necessary formatted as a parameter named text;
  • Do not encode - the alert content will be sent exactly as specified with no encoding whatsoever;
  • Encode tag values only - The tag values in the alert content will be URL encoded and the rest of the content will be left as defined.
