Event Action Mappings

In the ActionMappings part of the page event code to action id mappings can be created. This can be done manually or by uploading an existing mapping file.

Using the  button, a event code and a action configuration can be selected. When the event code is logged in FEWS, the associated action configuration will be executed. You can only map to existing action configuration by selecting them from a dropdown list. 

In the Action Mappings table a list of event code to action id mappings is displayed.

The event codes used in these examples are non existing event codes. For valid event codes, please see: Admin Interface - System Status - Event Codes
