Once you have selected the zip file containing the alarms (and associated monitoring information), you can choose the list of alarms that need to be imported into the environment. For the purpose of understanding the process better, let's consider the source environment to be VPENT2013DEV and the destination environment to be SRI-DOC. The exported alarm zip file contains 6 alarms. In the Alarm selection screen, there is an option to select only the required alarms from the list. Also, in addition, you can change the alarm name according to the requirement.
Let's take a deep dive into the alarm selection screen.
- Navigation Menu - This menu displays the current section that is currently visible to the user
- Alarm Status - Toggling the Alarm Status switch to ON will set the alarm to be enabled in the destination environment once the import process is complete. When the Alarm Status switch is set of OFF, the alarm will not be enabled after the import process.
- Alarm Name - Click the alarm name to change the name to a different one
Options - There are two options for the alarm import process viz. Error on duplicate and Override
By default, when you choose an alarm export file, all the alarms will be set to 'Error on Duplicate' state. You can choose to change the status in this screen.
- Error on duplicate - If this option is selected during the alarm import process, any alarms (that are being imported) with the same name as the one already existing in the environment will not be imported (overwritten). BizTalk360 will return an error message that can be viewed in the Result Summary screen.
- Override - If this option is selected, any alarms with the same name in the environment will be overwritten with the details of the alarm being imported
- Alarm Type - The visual cue for alarm type signifies the type of alarm (i.e.) Threshold Alarm/Health Check Notification Alarm/Data Monitoring Alarm. For e.g., if the alarm is a data monitoring alarm, the data monitoring icon will be highlighted and the remaining icons will be grayed out.
- Alarm Status - This is a global switch to change the alarm status of all the alarms that are selected
- Options - This is a global switch to toggle between what needs to happen when alarms with the same name exist in the source and destination environment
- Select All - Select this check box to select all the exported alarms
- General Guideline - All the screens in the alarm import process will have this general guideline section. This will provide information about the operations that can be performed in the current screen.
- Next - Click Next to proceed to the next step of alarm import process
- Back - Navigates to the 'Select File' section
- Cancel Import - Cancel's the import operation. The system will prompt "Are you sure you want to cancel Import process?". Click Yes to cancel the alarm import process. You will be redirected to the manage alarms page. Click No to continue the alarm import process.
