Some event-to-actions can be configured so that a second event must be triggered before the alarm that was triggered can be acknowledged. The second event is the acknowledgement condition.

For example, you can configure a Signal lost event to trigger an alarm, and specify that the alarm can only be acknowledged after the Signal recovered event is generated.

The following table lists the event types that gives you the option to configure an acknowledgement condition that must be cleared before the alarm can be acknowledged.
