@aravinth_chakravarthyr_173918 There is no difference in the alert fields regardless of whether they are sent via email, SNMP traps or posted to an external URL -- they all contain the same information.

The api_source_ip is the IP of the PC/laptop wheren an API call was sent. The source_node is the node where the event was triggered.

For more info, see Configuring alerts for events. Cheers!
