I want to see the result set from the InTouch subscription to see what tags it finds. This will also help the person see that communications to the running application are good.
When WIN-911 connects to an InTouch application, it sets a query, similar to the query set in the AlarmViewerCtrl, to receive all of the available alarms as they occur in real-time. It may be that we set this query and nothing is returned, which indicates there are no alarms active.
The WIN-911 alarm subscriptions allow users to set filter criteria to skinny down the alarm query result. Alarms matching the filter criteria are then routed to certain Strategies/Tactics.
Are you wanting to visualize the result from the alarm query coming back from InTouch? The alarms which match subscriptions will create Strategies so you'd be able to see those in the WIN-911 Log Viewer. Can you walk me through the problem you're trying to solve?
Thanks for the feedback.
I do want to visualize the results from that query simply as a "am I building the correct wildcard" confirmation. This is a Win911 development based feature request.
Are you looking for a GUI that would allow you to enter sample alarm information to see if the subscription you're creating would match an alarm? For example, at the top of the Subscription definition, you have fields for Alarm Name, Group, and Priority. You could then enter those values and then test your subscription against them. You would receive a simple Yes/No.
I wonder if the Subscription definition would be the correct place for a utility like this, perhaps you could enter this sample alarm information on the Subscription Routes tab and it would tell you which Routes it matches.
It would be possible to take it a step further and import a dbdump and list the alarms the subscription matches. I'm not sure this is possible, but it is an idea.
Let me know what you think.
You won't be notified about changes to this idea.
