Editing an Alarm View Standard Filter

You edit a standard filter to narrow what is displayed in the Alarms pane or an Alarm View for all users in the EcoStruxure Building Operation software.

A standard layout defines the columns that are included in the Alarms pane, Events pane, Alarm View, or Event View, the order in which they are displayed, whether or not the alarms or events are grouped in any way and whether they are displayed in an ascending or descending order. A standard filter defines the conditions that have to be met before the alarms or events are displayed in the pane or a View. The standard layout and filter is saved for the pane or View to which you made the changes. The standard layout and filter is displayed for all users of the the EcoStruxure BMS.

You can edit the layout and filter conditions of the standard layout and filter provided you have write permissions on the pane or View from which you are making the changes. When you change the standard layout and filter from a pane or View, the changes are only applied on that specific pane or View and for all users who view that pane or View. Other Views in the system are not affected. You can revert your layout changes.

Standard filters in Alarm Views and Event Views support relative paths for the Source property. You can reuse the Alarm View or Event View and have the Source path of the alarms or events dynamically change depending on where you paste, import, move or duplicate the Alarm View or Event View. For example, in a relative path: '../../*' where '../' represents a folder or other container object and '*' represents anything below the folder or container object.
