Event Definition

Generates Events based on Conditions, Faults (Data Source, Data Connection, Signal), Monitoring and Timebased Triggers. The Event can be generated by one or more condition(s), etc., which can be logically linked to each other using the Editor. Events can be managed using the Widget: Event Management.

The configuration unit can only be used in its entirety if the SCADA-Lizenz comprises the module "Extended events".

  1. By selecting the "Event Definition" button, you can edit a Definition that was created earlier. A new Event Definition is created via the Plus button.

  2. Assign a name to the Event Definition in the Basic Configuration. The Description field is optional. The "Group" field shows the Client in which this Event Definition was created. The path is generated automatically by the system.

  3. The Event Definition is activated or deactivated via the "Activated" checkbox.

  4. Select the Event Category. As soon as an Event Definition is activated, it can call up the alarm schedule via the category and, if necessary, call up the alarm for the current group.

Event Editor

The event editor is used as the basis for creating an event. With the help of various operators and parameters, the triggering of the event can be built together via drag and drop.

The Start bracket corresponds to an And link

Event Archive

The Event Archive archives the activated events. It contains the event, the corresponding event category, the incoming and outgoing time of the event and the acknowledgment.


All references to the Event Definition are displayed in the References.


The AuditLog is a change log that transparently shows how the object was changed. For some objects, it also shows which target values were set by a specific person. Power users can use the button on the right-hand side to get a detailed view of exactly what has been changed in the configuration.

The AuditLog can be used to quickly trace what happened to the object last. It corresponds to an extract from the Control Operation Archive.
