ObjectDescription in Alarm
I am using signalReal object.
I have configured by default name , description and alarm as per requirement by input connection pin.
Problem is, this configured name and description not appear In faceplate.I can read alarm sp which I have configured and alarm also work fine.
Please guide me how I display object description in face plate as well as alarm.

Not sure, but you may have missed out on what the Alarm Owner setting does in a Control Builder M project/application.
An alarm owning object must have this setting enabled, or else the parent application will become owner.
After all, the HMI will associate the alarm using the SourceGUID sent by the AC 800M. This GUID is calculated from the setting (or not setting) of Alarm Owner. Description is static in the HMI, but can be updated using the Name Uploader feature.
I suppose the CBM online help will tell even more. Read it.
Application initialisation is required for name and description parameters to appear on faceplate.This is required for all parameters whose description starts with EDIT:
While downloading select the application which contains this object and select “Int” on restart tab in Online Analysis – Online with Download.
I'm not sure, but probably you need to execute the aspect "Name Uploader" that you'll find in the Application's object.
This tool, replace the properties "name" and "description" of the aspect "Name" with the values configured in the parameters "Name" and "Description" of the instance of Function Block Type or Control Module Type. (If these parameters are not hidden in its parameter's attributes)
I hope it help.
