I have been tasked with implementing some additions to a device EDD. One of the requests was to add further information regarding alerts to the ExtendedHelpText and DDHelpText elements of the alert definition file. An example is given below,
<Alert> <Value>64</Value> <AlarmString>Valve Position Low Limit Exceeded</AlarmString> <Severity>ALERT_ABNORM_ID</Severity> <ExtendedHelpText> The valve position is below the low limit. (Disabled with a 0% value). </ExtendedHelpText> <DDHelpText> The valve position is below the low limit. (Disabled with a 0% value). </DDHelpText> </Alert>
After attempting to test the additions with AMS12 Alert Monitor I came to the conclusion that AMS12 Alert Monitor does not use the ExtendedHelpText and DDHelpText elements.
After a quick search it seems that AMS Analyze uses the DDHelpText. Would someone happen to know of other systems that are making use of these elements ?
Thanks in advance for any responses.
