    Matched template: None

    Issue: There are no DLT templates that include "<#>" or {#var#} at the beginning of the DLT registered template

  2. Content sent: 12345 is your OTP code for ABC (ABC Company - India Private Limited) - (ABC123456789). Share with your agent only. - ABC Pvt. Ltd.

    Matched template: {#var#} is your OTP code for {#var#} ({#var#}) - ({#var#} {#var#}). Share with your agent only. - ABC Pvt. Ltd.

    Issue: The value of "ABC Company - India Private Limited" in the content sent exceeds a single {#var#} character limit of 30.
