Messages Tab

Messages tab displays a list of messages and their details. The list is paged with the unread messages displayed in bold and the latest ones on top, by default.

Each message contains the following information:

  • Date: Time and date of the messages received
  • Source: Name of device and sensor/actuator/alarm that sent the message
  • Message Type: Type of the message (each type marked with the appropriate symbol)
  • Message: Message text
  • Description: Detailed description of a message (e.g. the condition under which the alarm activates)

To mark messages as read:

  • Click the checkbox and go to Mark as read
  • Message text will be unbolded, and you will receive a notice Selected messages were marked as read at the bottom right corner of the screen

You can select up to 10 messages per screen (a maximum number of messages that can be displayed on a screen), one by one, or use Mark all as read bulk mode.
It marks all the unread messages, not just those displayed on the screen you are currently on.

Filter Messages

Filter dialog, located above the list, filters out the messages according to read/all criteria (in Show text field), message type (Warning, Info and Alarm) and date.

Search Messages - Text Field

Search bar searches through the messages by their sources/semantic groups (e.g. living room, elevator), message texts and descriptions (e.g. high temperature, humidity…).

To clear filtering, and go back to default view, click the x button in the filter search bar.
