You'll find alarm pipelines in the Project Browser panel which appears in the top left corner of the Designer. Here you can create new alarm pipelines, organize your pipelines into folders, and import pipelines from other projects. Like other resources, pipelines are inheritable, so a pipeline can be configured in one project, and inherited by another.
Pipeline Blocks are the building blocks of the Alarm Pipelines and are located at the top of the Designer. Each pipeline block has unique functionality that performs tasks such as sending notifications, alarm escalation, setting a delay, evaluating an expression, and more. Simply drag any of the pipeline blocks to your design area and configure each pipeline block's properties.
Pipeline Block Editor
The Pipeline Block Editor displays the pipeline properties and properties of the selected pipeline block. To see pipeline properties, click anywhere in the workspace. Since each pipeline block performs a specific function, it also has its own properties. Select the pipeline block to see its properties. The image below shows both the Pipeline's properties and a Notification block's properties.
Alarm Pipeline Design Area
In this example, we used the Blank pipeline to create an Email pipeline. The Blank pipeline opens with the Start step, now drag the appropriate pipeline blocks to your canvas and begin building the logic for your notification pipeline. Set the properties for each pipeline block and connect the blocks to create your pipeline. The image below shows a simple pipeline that when an alarm occurs, a notification will be sent to Operators via email. If an operator doesn't respond to the notification within 5 minutes, a second email will be sent to another on-call roster called Managers.
