Manage Alarm Templates

By default, viewLinc assigns a host configuration alarm template to all new hosts added to the viewLinc monitoring system. Host configuration alarm settings can be modified, and an alarm notification template can be added. Together, these templates define when a host configuration alarm is activated, who is notified, and what alarm priority should be assigned (for reporting purposes).

  1. In Sites Manager select the Hosts and Devices tab.
  2. On the Hosts and Devices tree select one or more hosts.
  3. Select Configure > Host Configuration Alarm Settings.
  4. Set properties:
    Status
    Host configuration alarms can only be generated when status is enabled.
    Device alarm template
    Accept the default device alarm template, Default Host Configuration Alarm, or select a custom template from the drop-down list. Template selection applies to all selected hosts.
    Alarm notification template
    Select a template from the drop-down list. Notifications are not sent if no alarm notification selected (alarms are always indicated on the Location Alarms tab in Sites or Overview, or in the Alarms window).
    Alarm message
    (Optional) Add a descriptive message to include in alarm notifications. This text is used in place of the [AlarmMessage] macro in the related default email templates, or can be added to a custom email/SMS/voice template.
    Alarm comment
    (Optional) Select from the list of available predefined comments, or add a custom comment to include in alarm notifications. This text is used in place of the [Comments] macro in the related default email templates, or can be added to a custom email/SMS/voice template.
  5. Save your changes.
