Is it possible to change the name which is displayed in the Alarm list process?
System:PLC connect,6.0.2 system
Is it possible to change the name which is displayed in the Alarm list process? Right now it's linked to a aspect called 'OPC source name' and every time I deploy(fully control network deploy) object name is dublicating(ex:> SS2201:SS2201 alarm Name).
Thanks in advance.

I think that what you are seing is a new plc connect feature in version 6 where alarm and event list uses the OPC Source Name aspect even if you specify Object Name. Same applies to the description text.
If you look at the Controller it also has an OPC Source name aspect and this will be prepended to the OPC Source name of the object "by magic".
You may get over this by clearing the content of the OPC Source Name of the controller object. This at least removes the XXX: in front.
Here I have attached screen shot which contain OPC source Name and description for tag.
at present in alarm list,Object name and description is fetching from "OPC Source Name".
Do we have any other option to link "Name" aspect instead of "OPC Source Name"
I have included one more screen shot of alarm list.
Here object name is appearing complete path as i mentioned in the above.
Ex: We are getting object name "SS5302:SB53305R10BKR.SB53305R10BKR Relay_Faulty" in alarm list instaed we require "SB53305R10BKR Relay_Faulty"
Note:Object Name is fetching from "OPC Source Name" as i mentioned in the first screen shot.
Please check if you have more than one name column to add (see attached image) - the column headers support NLS, so in fact you may think you have selected ObjectName while you in fact have SourceName selected, but having a translation hiding the real name,
Bring up these aspects (Name aspect + OPC Source Name) and display their content and attach here.
Do *not* alter any of the factory default event or alarm list configuration objects in the Library Structure; always, always, always, copy and save under a new name to avoid having settings rolled back at a subsequent update or revision of the 800xA Base software.
I'm not suggesting that you delete the controller name - just that you clear the content of the controllers "OPC Source Name" aspect.
I can also see that you haven't set the the main object as "Alarm Owner" but are using the signal object as alarm. This may be the reason why your OPC Source name is so long i.e. consist of OPC Source name aspects from controller+main object+signal object.
Perhaps you can use the PLC Connect "Extended Event Id" to store the information you want and then use that in your alarm list. This however does not work for other connectivities.
