| Introduction

The current JSON format for creating custom alerts lacks the capability for complex calculations required for generating alerts accurately. Managing complex JSON is time-consuming and requires expertise. Using Blockly is beneficial as it allows users to easily build a wide range of alerts with varying levels of complexity.

In this case, Blockly is used to create advanced alerts similar to Alert Builder. These alerts are managed and run on CCU which also ensures that they run on CCU without Internet access meeting the Title 24 mandates.

This feature revamps the Alert Configuration page to tackle key user frustrations which are as follows:

    • Eliminating redundant tasks with a sharing feature and common pool component.
    • Replacing the complex JSON format with the intuitive Blockly component for alert creation.
    • Improving the Alert Builder to configure alerts for the cloud.
    • Implementing a consistent builder and query system for clearer visibility into equipment and parameter details.

| Types

Alerts can be classified into two types:

  • Predefined: These are designed to raise conditional alarms on certain preset conditions and configurations on different devices for existing users. There are two types of predefined alerts: Internal and Customer Visible. Internal alerts will be visible only to the internal portal users, the custom visible alerts will be visible to Facilisight portal users and Internal portal users as well.
  • Custom: These are configurable alerts based on user specifications. Only internal portal users will be able to edit or create custom alerts. Custom alerts can be further classified as custom alerts with Blockly, custom alerts through site sequencer and legacy custom alerts.
