Custom Subject Alarm State

I have an alarm with a custom subject. in the subject i have the {State} parameter.

this seems to work fine when the alarm goes active, but when the alarm clears the subject still says active. why does the subject {State} not change to clear when the email is sent?

When an alarm goes into an active state, an alarm event is created for that alarm. This is basically a snapshot of all relevant alarm and tag info. When the alarm goes active, it captures the {state} (which is active) and puts that in your subject for the alarm event. When your alarm is cleared, it doesn’t create a new alarm event.
