Using Bit.ly to Shorten the URLs

SMS messages are limited to 160 characters. So in the default SMS template we do not include the actual message of the event. We only include the event ID and the necessary details so you can get a good idea of what is happening.

However should you wish you can add more details to the SMS and use any of the available HTML tags in the message. Should you like to include the whole message you can enable the Bit.ly integration to shorten the URLs recorded in the audit log events.
