The property replacer is a generic component that allows you to merge properties from the event processed to e.g. the email subject line or a log file line. It is a central component that is used as often in the product as possible. The idea behind the property replacer is that there is often need to specify a value from the event processed.

    – The password in the database action view was not saved if encryption was not enabled.
    – In the File Logging action it could cause high CPU usage when Custom Fileformat was used.
    – In ODBC write which always persisted the NTSeverity as a constant value (4) to the database.
