    QUESTION:

    How do I globally modify the color attributes of Alerts within AutoOPERATOR?


    ANSWER:

    There is no BBPARM member that allows the user to globally change the color assigned to a priority value for an Alert in AutoOPERATOR. However, an ALRT Rule within AutoOPERATOR can modify an Alert, and color is one of the attributes that can be modified.  This can either be defined at the creation of the Alert, otherwise it is possible to MODIFY the Alert with an ALRT Rule. This is detailed in the steps below (for clarity, it may be necessary to cut and paste the screenshots into Notepad to preserve screen formatting)

    1.  From within AutoOPERATOR, Go into Rules
    2.  Select a Ruleset
    3.  ADD a new Rule
    4.  Make the event type - ALRT
    5.  Use an asterisk for the TEXT of the alert, to say 'all alerts'
    6.  On the SV (Variable Dependency panel), check AMFPRIOR EQ WARNING
    7.  Then on the AA panel you want to say MODIFY and then put the color of your choice in the color field (the example below changes WARNING to use GREEN)

    Using this method, you can make global changes to the Alerts that come to AutoOPERATOR.
