General enhancements

Genetec Mission Control™ 2.13.3.0 includes the following general enhancements:
New workflow activities
Trigger output
You can use this activity in an incident workflow to trigger the outputs of selected entities. Some examples include locking or unlocking a door, triggering a camera output and so on.

You can select the desired output relays and the output behavior. For more details on output behaviors, see About output behaviors and Output behavior - Properties tab topics in the Security Center Administrator Guide.

Enable/Disable state transition
You can use this activity to enable or disable the option to manually change an incident's state in the Incident monitoring task.

This does not affect the system's ability to change the incident state if the Change incident state activity is configured in the incident workflow.

Wait for incident priority
You can use this activity when you want to direct the system to wait for either any or a specified incident priority before proceeding to the next activity.
Conditional activities
You can direct system or operator action based on the value of one or a combination of various incident properties using Conditional activities in the incident workflow.
You design IF-ELSE conditions using one or more of the following:
Incident properties
  • Active duration
  • Area
  • Description
  • External ID
  • Latest Event
  • Latest Event Time
  • Location
  • Owner
  • Priority
  • Procedure completed
  • Recipients
  • Resolution time
  • Response time
  • Source entity type
  • State
Incident location
  • Area
  • Door
  • Entity
Depending on the complexity of your requirements, you can have multiple conditions grouped using a combination of the following:
  • Logical AND
  • Logical OR
  • Nested Conditional activities
Updates to existing workflow activities
Wait for event
The activity has an updated user interface and includes additional parameters for configuration.
  • You can select the option to aggregate all events of the previously aggregated alarm instance, irrespective of event source and related alarms selection.
  • Add custom field such as Alarm context.
Send an email
New context variables have been added to the message body Field menu in the Send an email activity:
  • Cardholder: A valid read trigger at any door entity captures the cardholder information that you can send via email to selected recipients.
  • Dynamic procedure: You can select this parameter to send the dynamic SOP steps, response times, operator responses and comments in a table format via email to selected recipients.
Updates to incident properties configuration
The Allow multiple occurrences within the same area and Allow multiple occurrences at the same location configuration options have been replaced with a Multiple occurrence restriction menu.

You can select one of the following Multiple occurrence restriction options to determine the active incident display in the Incident monitoring task:

None
Allow multiple active incidents of the selected incident type.
One per location
Allow only one active incident per incident type per location.
One per area
Allow only one active incident per incident type per area.
One per location per category
Allow only one active incident per incident type under the selected incident category per location.
One per area per category
Allow only one active incident per incident type under the selected incident category per area.
NOTE: You can also right click an incident type or category in the Incident configuration page of Config Tool to set the Multiple occurrence restriction for the incident type or all incident types under the selected incident category.
User interface upgrades
You can see the following changes in the dynamic SOP display in the Incident Monitoring task:
  • When there are multiple user options configured for a dynamic SOP step:
    • If the response options are 4 or less they are displayed as stacked buttons.
    • If there are more than 4 options, one button with the text Select response is displayed. Clicking it expands the list of responses available.
  • Shortcuts configured for a dynamic SOP step response are displayed as a tooltip.
  • Custom actions are displayed as stacked buttons.
  • Force comment option for dynamic SOP steps:
    • When selected during configuration, comment box opens automatically and you can proceed to the next step only after you enter text for the comment.
    • When cleared during configuration, Add comment is displayed as clickable text in the step and you can proceed to the next step whether your choose to enter comments or not.
View filter for the Latest activity log
You can filter the Latest activity log in the Incident details pane in the Incident monitoring task in Security Desk on one or more of the following criteria:
  • Comments
  • System actions
  • Aggregated events
  • Event aggregations
  • SOP completion
  • Monitoring
  • Warnings
  • TTR Events
  • Notes
New terminology
Sipelia™ public addressing workflow activity and Sipelia™ call action in dynamic SOP step custom actions configuration are now referred to as Public addressing and Call action respectively.
