Managing business rules

Alarm mapping

Alarm mapping enables you to change the severity and text of alarms to adapt them to your business priorities. For example, a loss of the connection to a device is by default a "MAJOR" alarm but may be critical to you. To change this, add an alarm mapping to change alarms related to connection losses to CRITICAL.

Click "Alarm mapping" in the Business Rules menu to see a list of all alarm mappings.

Alarm mapping

For each alarm mapping, the alarm severity and the name of the mapping is shown.

To edit an alarm mapping, simply click it.

To delete an alarm mapping, hover over it and click the "Delete" button.

Adding an alarm mapping

To add an alarm mapping, click "Add alarm mapping" in the top menu bar.


  1. Enter the alarm type to be modified.

  3. Select the desired new severity, or select "Drop" to not show the alarm at all.
