Alarm Table Column Preferences
The Alarm Table Column Preferences window allows you to select or clear the alarm table columns to the Alarms Table and save column order. 
Click the Alarm Table Preferences.png button to open the Alarm Table Column preferences window. These alarm columns are in sync with OneClick client. It displays the alarm columns that are available to you in OneClick. The newly added alarm attributes in the alarm-table-config.xml file, are displayed as columns in the Alarm Table Column Preferences. You can update the alarm table column preferences through WebClient and the same preferences are applicable to OneClick client.
Save Column Order 
As a WebClient user, you can save the order of the Alarm Table columns. Saving the column order allows you to persist changes with respect to the user logged in. To save the column order configured in WebClient, select the Column Order check box in the Alarm Table Column Preferences window. The Column Order configured in OneClick client for the user/group is retained in WebClient. The Column Order saved in WebClient updates the OneClick client Column Order. You can retrieve the default “Column Order” from “alarm-table-config.xml” file.
Create Custom Attributes 
You can create and add custom attributes in OneClick and see them in the Alarm Table Column Preferences of WebClient. To know how to create and add custom alarm attributes in OneClick, see Customizing OneClick Alarms.
Show Custom Attributes in Alarm Table
Using the Alarm Table Column Preferences window, you can show or hide the attributes in the Alarm Table. Select or clear the alarm attributes check box to view or hide them in the Alarm table. For more information see, Update Alarm Table Column section.
