AddOrUpdateAlert for "In Range" OR "Out Range",Alert Attributes For [InRange] are not valid

Hi everyone,

I want to use AddOrUpdateAlert to change the property Alert in service,I am using below code :

//Create the Attributes Infotable for AddOrUpdateAlert call
var params = {
infoTableName: "alertAttr" /* STRING */
};
var attrs = Resources["InfoTableFunctions"].CreateInfoTable(params);

// limit - Minimum value at which the alert will trigger.
var field = new Object();
field.name = "minimum";
field.baseType = "NUMBER";
attrs.AddField(field);

// limitInclusive - Is the condition Greater than (>) or Greater than or equal (>=)?
field.name = "minimumInclusive";
field.baseType = 'BOOLEAN';
attrs.AddField(field);

// limit - Maximum value at which the alert will trigger.
field.name = "maximum";
field.baseType = "NUMBER";
attrs.AddField(field);

// limitInclusive - Is the condition Greater than (>) or Greater than or equal (>=)?
field.name = "maximumInclusive";
field.baseType = 'BOOLEAN';
attrs.AddField(field);

 

var row = new Object();
row.minimum = 2; // Alert will trigger when field <2
row.minimumInclusive = true;
row.maximum = 9; // Alert will trigger when field >=9
row.maximumInclusive = false;
attrs.AddRow(row);

 

me.AddOrUpdateAlert({
property: "temp" /* STRING */,
alertType: "InRange" /* STRING */,
alertName: "stateAlert" /* STRING */,
description: "myTestAlert" /* STRING */,
enabled: true /* BOOLEAN */,
priority: 1 /* INTEGER */,
attributes: attrs /* INFOTABLE */,
persistent: true /* BOOLEAN */
});

 

Error Message :Error executing service alertAdd. Message :: Alert Attributes For [InRange] are not valid - See Script Error Log for more details

 

 I was able to do this for an Above and Below alert but can't get it to work with an "InRange" or "OutOfRange" alert type refert to this Article:CS230216 - What is the Expected Format of the Attributes InfoTable for the AddOrUpdateAlert Service ...

 

Anyone help with it ?

Thanks!

InRange or OutOfRange alerts cannot be created through service in ThingWorx
ERROR : Execution error in service script [CreateAlert] :: Alert Attributes For [InRange] are not valid
How to create InRange or OutOfRange alerts through service in ThingWorx ?
Resolution
Reported to R&D as JIRA ticket PSPT-6179
Steps to create an InRange alert through service:
1.Create a Thing
2.Add a property to trigger an alert
3.Create a service with Output Base Type NOTHING
4.Add the sample code to the service:
============================================
var params = {
infoTableName : "InfoTable",
dataShapeName : "IntegerRangeAlert" // This depends on the property used to trigger the alert
}; // In example we are triggering Integer property hence IntegerRangeAlert DS is used

// CreateInfoTableFromDataShape(infoTableName:STRING("InfoTable"), dataShapeName:STRING):INFOTABLE(NumberRangeAlert)
var table = Resources["InfoTableFunctions"].CreateInfoTableFromDataShape(params);

table.minimum = <Add the Minimum integer to trigger the alert>;
table.minimumInclusive = true;
table.maximum = <Add the Maximum integer to trigger the alert>;
table.maximumInclusive = true;
table.calculationValue = <Calculation value for Min and Max from alert value>;
table.calculationType = "Percentage";


var params = {
alertType: "InRange" /* STRING */,
alertName: "temp" /* STRING */,
property: "<Give the name of the property created in step 2>" /* STRING */,
description: undefined /* STRING */,
attributes: table /* INFOTABLE */,
persistent: true /* BOOLEAN */,
priority: 1 /* INTEGER */,
enabled: true /* BOOLEAN */
};

me.AddOrUpdateAlert(params);
==============================================

 

5.Save the service
6.Test the service
7.Go to Properties and check if the alert is triggered

Note: The DataShape called in the code depends on the Property Base Type:
Integer Base type uses IntegerRangeAlert DataShape
Number Base type uses NumberRangeAlert DataShape
Long Base type uses LongRangeAlert DataShape
