Set o = oAl.Item(sId, tTimeOn)
|sId||(String) The unique text identifier of the alarm item. See "Identifier" configurator.|
|tTimeOn||[optional] (Date) Creation time of the alarm item. |
If not set (or the value 0 is set), then the alarm item is returned without checking the creation time.
If specified, then the creation time of the alarm item must correspond to the set value.
The tTimeOn parameter is useful first of all in two following cases:
1. If several instances of the alarm item with the same identifier exist (cased by states of the alarm items inactive unacknowledged (blue)), then it enables to return one concrete instance of the alarm item (even other than the last). If the tTimeOn parameter is omitted, then the last, the latest old, alarm item is returned.
2. If the operation is performed over the alarm item and a delay between the beginning of the operation and its termination can arise (the confirmation window for the action or the operation transferred between two computers), then it is advisable to specify by the tTimeOn parameter that the operation has to be performed over the concrete instance of the alarm item in the time. If the instance of the alarm item doesn't exist in the moment when the operation starts to be performed, then the operation is cancelled (e.g. an attempt to acknowledge the same alarm item from two computers at the same time), otherwise the operation would have been performed over the newer (other than original) instance of the alarm item.
