You can add macros to your maps to allow Security Desk operators to run macros from maps.

Before you begin

  • Create the map where you want to add your macros.
  • Make sure you have macro in your Security Center system.


  1. From the Config Tool home page, open the Map designer task.
  2. Select a recent map or click Browse all maps to open an existing map.
    The selected map fills the Map designer workspace.
  3. In the toolbar, click Macros (), select the macro () you want to add, and drag it to where you want it to be on the map.
    The widgets for configuring the map object appear in the right panel. The map object always takes on the identity of the entity it represents.
  4. (Optional) In the Macro properties widget, click Override default context to set an execution context that is different from the default.
    Click Clear to revert to the default execution context.
  5. In the Map designer toolbar, click Save ().
