Is there a way to make AP out of Service Alarm show the AP name in Netsight?

Currently the AP out of Service Alarm only identifies the AP's serial number within the Alarm entry in Netsight. We use the string "Device: $alarmSourceName Access Point" to identify the AP name for our Email alerts, but is there a way to get the alarm to show the AP name within Netsight? Thanks.

EDIT: I completely missed your original question. You want to know how to make this show up *in Netsight*. So disregard this answer. Sorry. 🙂

I have found that a lot of the fields come back empty. The AP name variable is $alarmSourceName.

You can edit these, if you didn't already know that. This is how to you get to the screen to edit the AP Out of Service alarm ...

And then here are the fields that I have selected (because everything else comes back null/empty) ...

Source: $alarmSource
Source Name: $alarmSourceName
Severity: $severity
Message: $message

Here is an example of an alarm message that I received ...

Source: 15302125085J0000
Source Name: PT-Services-AP2
Severity: Critical
Message: AP[15302125085J0000] out of Service on EWC[10.10.72.10]

Joshua,

Are you running version 8? I believe there was a change in v8 to show this in the OneView Alarm "Source" - https://gtacknowledge.extremenetworks.com/articles/Q_A/Why-does-OneView-not-show-the-device-name-in-...

Let us know if that is not what you are looking for.

Regards,
Jason
