          Looks like you haven't configured the VizAlertsConfig workbook correctly. Please see this section of the Install Guide for how to set the parameters appropriately.

            Yeah , I'm reoperated the Step. It is Solved. I received new problem.

            It shows in my email at the following.

            The following errors were encountered trying to process your alert:

             

            General errors:

             

            Found non-allowed character(s): {} in filename {} for content reference

             

            Alert was triggered, but unable to process arguments to a content reference with error:

             

            Found non-allowed character(s): {} in filename {} for content reference

             

            Unable to process alert Advanced Alerts Stress Tests as csv, error: Alert was triggered, but encountered a failure getting data/image references:

            Alert was triggered, but unable to process arguments to a content reference with error:

             

            Found non-allowed character(s): {} in filename {} for content reference

            I tried to solve the problem until now.

              Sounds like you are using some invalid characters for the filename you are assigning in the content reference. This is the code that checks for them:

               

              nonallowedchars = re.findall(u'(?L)[^\w \-._+]', filename)

               

              Try starting with something basic, that is all-alphanumeric. That should definitely work. Then customize from there.
