&userId value is not recorded for message id CCNS022I for pausing monitored node

 create rule with message id CCNS022I for pausing monitored node then sending an email alert with the below content
&nodeId; is paused by &userId;

but when i paused monitored server, alert is triggered and email is sent as below.
ASI_TEMPERS1 is paused by Unavailable

I am not getting any value for &userId;

It would be good if we capture &userId in the events table

    This request is in the process of being addressed, and should be in the next iFix release of Control Center

    Note the userId element and value will be in the events generated for both pause, and resume, node service monitoring, and therefore will appear in your emails if you include the variable for it.
