    Attributes

    Description

    Blackout Start

    Select a blackout start date and time.

    Blackout End

    Select a blackout end date and time.

    Device Group

    Select a device group from the drop-down list to apply the blackout configuration.

    Attribute

    Select an attribute from the drop-down list to apply the blackout configuration.

    Value

    If you have selected an attribute, provide a corresponding associated value. Only the alarms that match this attribute value will be suppressed from the alarms report table.

    • If you have selected Resource as the attribute, select a corresponding value from the Value drop-down list.

    • If you have selected Resource-Event as the attribute, select a corresponding value from the Value drop-down list.

    The field is enabled when you select Event or Resource-Event attributes from the Attribute drop-down list.
