Clearing an alarm while it is disabled?

Ignition 7.8.1

I am implementing an Ignition system for a plant where there are certain alarms that should only trigger while the plant is running, so I am disabling the alarm when the plant is in standby.

However, if an alarm is triggered while the plant is running, but doesn’t clear before the plant stops, it just stays there, even after being acknowledged. Is there some way to clear alarms while they are disabled? Could I make it do that when the alarm is acknowledged?

I think the easiest way to do it would be through a script function that clears the alarm, but I don’t see any function for doing that. Any other ideas?

So I’m in the exact same situation. Were you ever able to solve this? Right now, we’re discounting “orphaned” alarms from our alarms analysis, but that kind of seems silly.

We’re not having that problem anymore. I don’t remember doing anything other than updating to the latest version, so if I were you, I would try that.
