Allowed variables in e-mails

Email templates wouldn't be worth anything if you couldn't include useful information about the ticket, the post and the user in them. You can do so by using "variables". The variables are ALWAYS written in all-uppercase letters, surrounded by square brackets, without spaces, exactly as defined below. The available variables are:


The name of the email recipient.


The numeric ticket ID


The ticket's title


The full name of the person who posted the ticket / reply


The username of the person who posted the ticket / reply


The post text


A link to the attachment (text and URL), left blank if there is no attachment


The URL of the ticket on your site


Ticket category name


The name of your site


URL of the avatar image of the user who posted the ticket / reply


A list of the active Akeeba Subscriptions subscription levels for the user who posted (if you have Akeeba Subscriptions installed)


The origin of the post (e.g. web or email)

Special considerations for the use of variables

  • The only variables available for the mailgateway-invaliduser key is [SITENAME]

  • The ticket variables ([ID] through [CATNAME] and [ORIGIN]) are only available for the "Akeeba Ticket System - New post notification emails" plugin's Keys.
