7.9.5 Alarm Source Filter Wildcard Not Working

Hey all,
I’m having an issue with a wildcard (*) filter not working in the source filter of my Alarm Status Table, and not working in the Path of a system.alarm.queryStatus script. Incidentally the issue is NOT affecting my Alarm Journal Table. Similar to what was 1st reported here except this is a 7.9.5 install.

When trying to use the filter *Main Plant* alarms that should be shown are not. Definitely not the goal I’m after!

Did you figure that out? I have the same issue. I updated from 7.9.2 to 7.9.5 this morning and the old wild card (* )which use to work with older version doesn’t work anymore.

This is a known regression that slipped into 7.9.5; it’s already been fixed in 7.9.6.

Same as support told me…any anticipated release date for 7.9.6?
This particular bug is killing me!

We are in the same situation but have bandaided it with the following

system.alarm.queryStatus(source=["*"],all_properties=properties = [(“AlarmGroup”,"=",“ML1”)])

I don’t know if you set a custom property for area on your alarms, but this works since we do.

Yep, I change the alarm status filter as a workaround after upgrading to 7.9.5…:frowning2:
Hope 7.9.6 will be released as soon as possible !

7.9.6 beta will be available soon?

FYI, I am getting it to work if I include most of the tag. For example

sourceFilter = “prov:default:/tag:Enterprise/Burleson1/Extrusion/Line1/TemperatureReceiver/Transmitter_007*”
alarms = system.alarm.queryStatus(source=[sourceFilter])

does return the following sources

Hi @PGriffith
Have you an ETA for the final 7.9.6 ??? we are speciality looking for the alarm source filter bug fix to upgrade our 7.9.4 applications.

Last I heard was within the next two weeks, barring any significant discoveries.


thanks paul for this feedback.

Hi @PGriffith, the 7.9.6 final release is delayed?
