Pass Alarm Associated Data as Query Parameter

I have associated data on an alarm, it is static, but different for each tag the alarm exists on. The associated data is called JobNumber. I also have an Alarm Notification Pipeline using a calculated roster type with a script to run a named query, but I cannot get my alarm associated data to pass correctly as a parameter into the runNamedQuery. Here is what my script looks like:

	params = alarmEvent.get("JobNumber")
	data = system.db.runNamedQuery("ALARM QUERY", {params})
	for row in data:
	roster =
	return roster

The NamedQuery has a parameter field to accept an integer and the JobNumber associated data is also an integer which is what I am trying to pass. I think that the first line where I call to get the associated data is what is causing the issue but I do not know the correct syntax for it.


	param = alarmEvent.get("JobNumber")
	data = system.db.runNamedQuery("ALARM QUERY", {'JobNumber': param})

Just putting curly braces around a variable doesn’t make it a dictionary.

That did not work, but I see what you mean about the dictionary. I’m pretty sure I got this to work sometime yesterday, but I wasnt paying attention to my email I use to test the notification block and missed it and then ended up changing the code and cant remember how I did it.

I just checked the log (I forgot it exists) to see why it didn’t work and it says:

org.python.core.PyException: Traceback (most recent call last): File "", line 21, in calculateRoster NameError: global name 'alarmEvent' is not defined

Wanted to post this as I figured out how to get the query to allow parameters, just not with a Named Query like I was trying. I had to use a Prep Query.

	params = event["Number"] 
	data = system.db.runPrepQuery("SELECT * FROM table WHERE job = ?",[params])

The event[“Number”] is the name of the associated data from the alarm.
That is also not the actual query I am running but for ease of understanding I trimmed it to make it simpler here.

Ah, probably because runNamedQuery requires a project name when called in gateway scope, even if in a project. ( Longstanding API screw-up that isn’t readily fixable. )
