Alarm Attachments

You can add attachments to alarm objects, except System Information alarms. An attachment is a link pointing to an object in the system. When an alarm that has an attachment is triggered, a paperclip icon is displayed in the Alarms pane and Alarm Views. It is also possible to configure the attachment to display when the alarm is going from Normal to Alarm state.

An attachment can be: a voice message, a report, a trend chart, a schedule, a Microsoft Word file, a PDF file, a video recording, or a pop-up window that contains information regarding the alarm.

You can add the same attachment or set of attachments to multiple alarms in a single operation. You can also delete the attachments that belong to multiple alarms in a single operation. If you add an attachment that already has been attached to an alarm, the later attachment is added as a duplicate.

You can open attachments provided that the program or editor associated with the attachment is locally installed on your computer. For example, if the attachment is a PDF file, you can open the file if Adobe Reader or a similar program is installed on your computer.
