Node Associations

Node Associations bind a tag and a type to configuration for an object node in a topology component.

Node Associations have a tag (or set of tags) which are used to match the nodes against topologies which make use of them, and a Type and isList properties, that match an object type displayed in a topology.

Given a matching Node Association, the topology can retrieve the properties necessary to render the node.

Edge Associations

Edge Associations bind a tag and a pair of Type and isList properties that define the kind of nodes that the edge links.

An Edge Association contains:

A pair of Type and isList properties defining the origin of the edge.
A pair of Type and isList properties for the termination of the edge. The combination of these properties matches a specific kind of connection within the appropriately tagged topology.

Given a matching Edge association, the topology can retrieve the properties necessary to render the edge.

Creating Associations

An association is used to house and organize references to entities. Create a new association either by starting with a blank association, or by copying an existing association.

Creating Alarm Associations: Example

Alarm associations are used to link alarms to view components. Views that display alarms can use alarm associations. If you want alarms to use the Alarm dialog box, create an alarm association for each alarm type you want to display in this dialog box. If you want the Alarms table and Alarm dialog box to display agent information, the agent should be set as the monitoring agent for each entity it monitors.

Configuring the alarm association requires setting the following elements:

Configure the Small Detail View property to point to a view to display on the Recent History view on the Summary tab.
Configure the Large Detail View property to point to a view to display on the Recent History view on the History/Notes tab.
Set the Rule ID property to the ID of the rule that generates the alarm.
