Unable to access the Tools menu item to configure options in the standalone version of I/A Series G3 Alarm Portal

Issue

Unable to access the "Tools" menu item to configure options in the "standalone" version of I/A Series G3 Alarm Portal

Product Line

TAC I/A Series

Environment

I/A Series G3, Alarm Portal, ENS-ALM-CON-G3

Cause

The "Tools" menu item was removed in I/A Series G3 versions 3.6 and higher to prevent any user from configuring Alarm Portal options (e.g. appearance and operational behavior).

Resolution

Configuration of the Alarm Portal options on a "standalone" version requires a set of files to be transferred from a full Workbench version of the Alarm Portal to the standalone version.

  • Start Workbench and select Tools - Options

  • Configure options (e.g. Alarm Console, Alarm Portal)

  • Close Workbench and use Windows Explorer to locate the options subfolder for the user that modified the Alarm Portal options

Copy the associated options files (alarm-AlarmConsoleOptions.options and alarm-AlarmPortalOptions.options) to the standalone Alarm Portal. Place the files under the appropriate user using the same path structure in an options subfolder.  The Alarm Portal will now use the options defined.
