This example adds additional fields to the model illustrated in B.1.2. This example does not use acknowledge or confirm – it assumes that the alarm is automatically acknowledged (and does not support confirm). It does add OutOfServiceStateand SuppressedState.

Figure B.3 shows an Alarmas it becomes active, is suppressed or is placed out of service and then inactive. Table B.3 lists the values of the state Variables. All Eventsare coming from the same Conditioninstance and therefore have the same ConditionId. The Clientsubscription includes an event filter that excludes suppressed or out of service conditions (i.e. SuppressedState= True or OutOfServiceState= True). The events shown in green are delivered to the Client. The Retain column indicates the global value of the Retainflag. The “Retain sent” column indicates the overridden value sent in a notification if SupportsFilteredRetainis True. If SupportsFilteredRetainis False the value from the Retain column is sent.

This behaviour occurs when the implementation supports SupportsFilteredRetain flag subscription.
