In a AOI if you place built in alarm like ALMD or ALMA. How can you pass the message to it when its in alarm. So it will send the message to Factorytalk SE.

This is the way how to configure them.

Yes but if its in a Add on Instruction how do you get the message in there. It doesn't let you open the ALMA or ALMD instruction. Or did I miss it?

you´re right, I was looking up on manual 1756-pm001 chapter 9 (designing AOI) and found nothing.

Got the answer to this, and at this point and time you can't do it. The alma and almd instructions can be placed inside the AOI but later configuration and utilization will come on a later revision to rslogix5000. thanks to all for the help

I considered doing this for a current project, but having all the alarm messages permanently fixed made me reconsider. I'm using the ALMA and ALMD instructions, but not putting them in an AOI.
I'd like to be able to access the Message string in the UDT as well. It looks like everything else is accessible, just not the Alarm Message string. I have found a way to edit them outside the wizard using the Export Tags and Logic Comments and that is OK for offline work.
