Active notifications may become inactive (cleared) in the following ways:

  • When an underlying Manager determines that an event is no longer occurring, the state of its notification is changed to inactive and the changed state is recorded in the audit log. The Manager, the source of the notification, clears the event.

  • If the source of the notification is not capable of clearing an event, the event can be cleared after an expiration interval provided by the source.

  • When the notification attribute ClearOnAcknowledge is set to True for a specific notification, the notification becomes inactive when an operator acknowledges it.

  • When an underlying Manager fails to re-notify an active notification after a disconnect condition is restored, the state of the notification changes from WAS_ACTIVE to INACTIVE. The system clears the event.
