Alarm Filters

Alarm filters are used to set up the conditions for the alarms you want to be displayed in an Alarms pane or an Alarm View. You also use alarm filters to determine the conditions that have to be met before a sum alarm is triggered, an email notification is sent, a write to file notification is written, or an alarm is automatically assigned to a user.

You filter on a condition category and then select the sub conditions for that category.

Examples:

You filter on Type and then select Alarm Record if you only want EcoStruxure Building Operation alarms to be displayed in the Alarms pane or Alarm View.

You filter on Type and then select Extended System Alarm Record and Simple System Alarm Record if you only want EcoStruxure Building Operation system alarms to be displayed in the Alarms pane or Alarm View.

Note:

To edit the filter conditions of an alarm, assignment, or notification, you have to open the alarm, assignment, or notification by clicking it.

Filter condition wildcards

A wildcard is one or more characters used to simplify the process of setting up filter conditons. You use wildcards to substitute characters or combinations of characters in object properties, such as names or descriptions. For example, instead of setting up five filter conditions for values with names beginning with a, b, c, d, or e, you can set up one single filter condition for values with a name beginning with any of the characters in the range [a-e].
