  6. Review the settings for the dependency. If there are active alerts on child objects, they are listed on this view.
  7. Click Submit.

The dependency appears on the Manage Dependencies page. This dependency can be used to limit an alert, which is then triggered only for the router that goes down, and not when a monitored device is unreachable because the router is down.

You can also display the dependency on custom views in the Orion Web Console.
