The Association Process

After you create an alarm notification policy, you associate the policy with one or more alarm processing applications. An association between a policy and an application remains in effect until you associate another policy with that application or delete the associated policy.
SANM enforces a rule that an application can have only one associated policy at a time. To let an application to process different alarms at different times, associate the policies with the applications manually at run time. Or use the Schedule subview to schedule the associations automatically at a specified date and time. To run the same application with different policies, start multiple instances of the application, each with a unique name. Then associate the different policies with the application instances.
To change the policy that is associated with an application, associate a policy, such as the default policy, with that application. If you instead delete the associated policy, SANM associates the default policy with the application. Editing a policy that is associated with multiple alarm processing applications changes the policy for all of the applications. Reassociating the policy with each application is not required.
The SANM Default Policy
SANM associates a default policy with each application when you start the application for the first time, or when you delete a policy associated with that application. You can also explicitly associate the default policy with an application.
The default policy is a null policy; it does not filter alarms. That is, applications that are associated with the default policy receive all alarm notifications that occur in every landscape in the landscape map of the SpectroSERVER to which SANM is connected.
You can modify the default policy to add filters, but SANM continues to associate it with applications by default.
If you delete a policy that is associated with an application, SANM associates the default policy with that application. Therefore, before you delete a policy, check whether the default policy has been modified. If you delete a policy that is associated with an application, or if you modify the default policy, SANM displays a warning.
You can avoid associating the default policy associated with an application when you delete the associated policy. First associate a different policy with the application. The current policy is automatically deleted.
Associate a Policy with an Application
