Deploying alarm definitions

When using the alarm definition list views, you can move and copy alarm definitions to other groups and libraries that exist within the same file system. (For more information about the file system, see Alarm definition file system structure.)

By using alarm definition deployment or the alarm export and import batch jobs, you can copy alarm definitions to other file systems.


  • The alarm definition deployment feature is available in MainView Alarm Management 5.0 and later only.

  • To copy alarm definitions in MainView Alarm Manager 2.1, use the alarm export and import batch jobs.

  • To copy or move alarm definitions from MainView Alarm Manager 2.1 to the current version of MainView Alarm Management, use the migration steps in Migrating alarm definitions.
