    Searching Alarms

    Use Search Alarms, available from the Tasks pane, to filter and isolate information about a specific alarm. Use this page to specify complex sorting and filtering criteria for all alarms.

    Each field in the Search Alarm window helps narrow the current list of alarms. The more search items you specify, the more specific your results. All fields are optional.

    1. Select or type the known descriptors for the alarm. These fields are described in Table 1.
    2. Click Search to run the query. The Alarms Details page opens with the results of your search.
    3. Review the alarm. From this page you can change the state of the alarm, annotate, or assign the alarm to personnel. For more information about changing the state of an alarm, view Changing Alarm State.
