## 5.8.8 RemoveFromService Method

The RemoveFromService Method is used to suppress a specific Alarm instance. It is only available on an instance of an AlarmConditionType that also exposes the OutOfServiceState. Normally, the NodeId of the object instance is passed as the ObjectId to the Call Service. However, some Servers do not expose Condition instances in the AddressSpace. Therefore, Servers shall allow Clients to call the RemoveFromService Method by specifying ConditionId as the ObjectId. The Method cannot be called with an ObjectId of the AlarmConditionType Node.

Signature

Comments

Instances that do not expose the OutOfService State shall reject RemoveFromService calls. RemoveFromService Method applies to an Alarm instance, even if it is not currently in the Active State.
